  1. Toss the zucchini and salt together and place into a colander set in the sink. Allow to drain for 1 hour, then squeeze the liquid out of the zucchini, and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with the melted butter.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl with the pepper, garlic powder, and parsley. Stir in the zucchini, Monterey Jack cheese, and baking mix until combined. Pour into the prepared casserole dish.
  4. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until set and golden brown on top, 45 minutes to 1 hour. The souffle is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

I loved this recipe! So did my husband and kids! I had a huge zucchini, and was looking for something new. This was awsome! I think it would also be good with some hamburger meat or sausage with extra cheese melted over the top. mmm I can't wait to try it! Oh, it was also very easy to make.

Not really a souffle. Not bad, but not much to it.

Excellent recipe! Only thing I did differently was to add 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning in place of the parsley. Even my kids loved it! I will definitely make this again!

This was very good. My veggie loving daughter loved it, and my veggie hating daughter tolerated it. I enjoyed it. It was very comforting on a cold evening. I think it could be used with a variety of vegetables.

I really liked this. The combination of flavors and textures works well. The only changes I made: added 1 sliced shallot, 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese and I substituted 1/3 cup flour with 2 teaspoons baking powder for the 1/4c biscuit mix I didn't have.

Pretty good, I increased the baking mix to 1/2c. and omitted the butter. I also added a large garlic clove minced. A nice side dish to grilled London broil and Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing from this site. Will probably make again. Thanks!

I used fresh garlic because I didn't have powdered. I also added jalapenos because I wanted a kick. This is incredibly delicious! It's the best use I've found for that late-season zucchini.
