Zucchini Bread Pudding

Serve this veggie-filled casserole as a meat-free dish for dinner or brunch. Although it's rich and inviting, this cheesy side dish will fit into your diabetic meal plan because it's made with fat-free milk and refrigerated egg product.


Nonstick cooking spray
2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh or frozen whole kernel corn
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped bottled roasted red sweet peppers
1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil, crushed
1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes, crushed
1 tablespoon snipped fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
5 cups 1-inch sourdough or Italian bread cubes
