    Obviously not in the food forum though. Anyhow, I ran across this from Al Dente blog:

    Walnut Broccoli

    Ingredients:

    3 pounds fresh broccoli
    1/2 cup butter
    4 tablespoons flour
    1 1/2 tablespoons powdered chicken stock base
    2 cups whole milk
    2/3 cup water
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter
    8 ounces of dry stuffing mix or coarsely chopped breadcrumbs
    2/3 cup chopped walnuts

    Directions:

    1. Cook broccoli in salted boiling water until tender. Drain. Place broccoli in a greased 2-quart casserole.

    2. In a saucepan, melt the half cup of butter, blend in flour and chicken base. Stir to a smooth paste. Slowly add milk and stir until thick and smooth. Pour over broccoli.

    3. Heat the water and 6 tablespoons of butter and pour over stuffing/breadcrumbs. Toss, add nuts and cover broccoli. Bake at 400 degrees-F for 20 minutes.

    Serves: 8

    Zucchini Casserole Recipe

    6-8 eggs
    1 cup ricotta cheese
    1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce or other hot chili sauce
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3 cups grated zucchini (from 2-3 fresh zucchinis)
    1 1/2 cups chopped plum tomatoes (from 4-5 fresh tomatoes),
    1/2 cup sliced fresh basil (from about 20 leaves)*
    4 cups cubed day-old bread (from about 4 slices)
    Olive oil


    (I sometimes also add cooked sausage to mine..)

    Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl beat the eggs. Add the ricotta and beat until smooth. Mix in the grated Parmesan cheese, Tabasco, salt and pepper.

    Prepare the vegetables and bread. Once you chop the tomatoes, squeeze excess moisture out of them by pressing them in a sieve, or wrapping in paper towels and squeezing. Add the tomatoes, basil, and zucchini to the egg mixture. Moisten the bread cubes with a little water then squeeze out any excess moisture using paper towels. Mix the bread cubes into the egg mixture.

    Coat the bottom and sides of a 9x13 baking dish generously with olive oil. Pour the egg vegetable mixture into the baking pan and even it out in the pan. Place in the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F. The casserole should puff up and brown lightly. If it hasn't after 30 minutes at 350, increase the heat to 425° and cook for 5-10 minutes further. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.

    Ohhhh, sounds grand. High calorie, but divine. Nutrition wise, no need for sausage, but it would add to taste!
