Mt. Rainer Zucchini and Rice

Mt. Rainer Zucchini and Rice

This is a recipe some coworkers of mine made for an outdoor Dutch oven cooking competition about 20 years ago and I've adapted to a conventional oven. My wife loves this and we've even had it as a main course although it is better suited to a side dish due to its rich flavor.

    Mix sour cream, garlic, salt, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and black pepper together in a bowl; spread over Colby cheese layer. Cover Dutch oven.

    Bake in the preheated oven until rice is tender and cheese is bubbling, about 45 minutes.
