Zucchini and Velveeta Cheese with Grapenuts

I was reading a discussion about Velveeta Cheese and found someone discussing a recipe combining zucchini with Velveeta. Does anyone have such a recipe? Or can someone tell me the ratio of zucchini to Velveeta that I should use, based on her description? Also, do you think the zucchini should be peeled or unpeeled?

I decided to make zucchini cubes baked with Velveeta and Grapenuts. It's been so long since I was served this that I really can't remember the specifics, and was unable to find a recipe. It's in the oven now - used my judgment and tossed zucchini with a little Wondra flour, cubed Velveeta, and green garlic (original may have had scallion/onion, or neither), plus black pepper, topped with Grapenuts mixed with melted butter. The Velveeta looked paler in color than I recall, and with even less taste. I'd toyed with adding cheddar cheese powder, then forgot (I can always stir it into the serving dish if it really needs it).

My mother used to make a dish called "Zia Casserole" that came from (I think) a church cookbook. It called for zucchini, onions, bread cubes, Velveeta, and Carnation Evaporated Milk. It sounds weird, but I loved it as a kid. If you're interested, I have the recipe at home and could post it tonight.

Since I can't tell when you guys are kidding around or serious, Grape Nuts is cereal, that you sprinkle on top like you would bread crumbs.

Yeah.. I was quoting a line from the 80's. I think it was by Jerry Seinfeld....
