Zucchini, Potato, Bacon Casserole for One

I really wanted something hearty and delicious but still healthy for dinner tonight. I was also only cooking for myself so I didn't want to make a whole big dish that I knew I would eat and eat and eat and eat until it was gone.
I decided to use my single serving casserole dish and use up things in the fridge.
This turned out really tasty and would be easy enough to make into a bigger casserole if you so desired. is only 248 calories, 22 carbs, 11 fat, and 15 protein.
Zucchini, Potato, Bacon Casserole for One
3 cherry tomatoes
pinch thyme
pinch garlic salt
1/4 cup onions, finely chopped
2 pieces bacon, diced
2 slices of a large zucchini (or other squash)
1/2 of a small potato (precooked in microwave for 3 - 4 minutes), cut into 4 slices
3 Tbsp aged light cheddar, shredded
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a single serving casserole dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a magic bullet or blender, blend cherry tomatoes, thyme, and garlic salt. Spread on the bottom of the small, single serving casserole dish.
In a small frying pan, cook onion and bacon until bacon is cooked.
Layer in dish as follows:
tomato sauce

zucchini slice

2 slices potato

1 Tbsp cheese

1/2 of the bacon and onion
and repeat:
zucchini slice
2 slices of potato
1 Tbsp cheese
1/2 of the bacon and onion
and top with remaining 1 tbsp cheese
Baked at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour, until zucchini is cooked (fork tender). If your topping is getting to crispy then cover dish until it is completely cooked.
Not exactly the fanciest dish out there but, hey, it was darn good AND...for only 248 calories I am not complaining at all.
Bacon makes everything better.
It's true.
