Zucchini Sausage Bake...

This dish is really quick to put together and another great way of using up zucchini. 
A little note:
I read somewhere the other day that a lady had started using more sausage than ground beef in her recipes because it was cheaper.
1 lb sausage
1 medium onion
1/3 cup chopped peppers
1 x-large or 2 medium zucchini
1 large can spaghetti sauce
1 cup cottage cheese
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup mozzarella
1 1/2 t minced garlic
seasonings: garlic powder, pepper, salt, basil, oregano

Crumble and brown the sausage with the onions and peppers. Drain.
Spray 9x13. Slice half the zucchini into a layer in the baking dish. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and oregano.
Slice in remaining zucchini. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and basil.
Pour sausage mixture over the zucchini and spread evenly.
Pour spaghetti sauce over sausage mixture evenly.
Mix cottage cheese, eggs, and mozzarella and spread over sauce.
Sprinkle lightly with oregano.
Bake at 350 for approx. 35 minutes.

I'm fighting birds and Peter Rabbit for those tomatoes!

Any suggestions for getting rid of rabbits? The beagles aren't fast enough anymore....can't even earn their keep! ;-)
