How to Make Keto Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Casserole {Quick Overview}

This is just a quick overview of some of the steps involved in making the low carb zucchini casserole. For the recipe in detail, including exact measurements used at each step, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

To start this casserole, you’ll need to remove some of the water from the shredded zucchini.

If you don’t want to shred your own zucchini, you can use fresh spiralized zucchini found in the produce section. Just make sure to chop it into shorter pieces so you’re not using long spirals.
