Zucchini Casserole (side dish)

The Menu:
Zucchini Casserole (side dish)

The Original Recipe:
I cannot find the original recipe, so this is my way of making this side dish. It's really good. My kids even liked it! Which says a lot when you can see "green" things floating around in your food. My kids are so funny sometimes. The faces they make, and then after they taste it, they are surprised 9 times out of 10 that they actually like the food that mommy makes.

Zucchini Casserole (side dish)

1 box stove top stuffing
1 small to medium zucchini (about 2 cups), shredded and squeezed to get some of the juices out
2 carrots, shredded
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chicken broth mixed with 1 tbls. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. dried sage (or I used 5 leaves fresh sage, chopped)

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Make stuffing according to directions, set aside. Meanwhile, mix zucchini, carrots, sage, sour cream and chicken broth mix together in bowl. Pour mixture into an 8x10 baking dish, add stuffing to the top of the mix in casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, 45 minutes.
