I've got zucchini coming out my ears....any ideas?

My zucchini crop is awesome this year, but I can't seem to keep up with it, so I'm looking for ideas on how to incorporate zucchini into our menus. Here's what I've done so far:

~zucchini bread
~stir fry with zucchini and other veggies
~lasagna with zucchini replacing the noodles....yummy!
~shredded and froze it
~gave it away!

Anybody have any other great ideas for me! I hate it to go to waste, but I only have a limited space in the freezer and it's already got more than enough! Thanks!

Oooooh slice it bread it and FRY it! Oh yea baby! That's what I'm talkin' about! Not the healthiest thing to do to a veggie, but fried zucchini is almost as good as fried okra!

You can also grill it with other veggies and serve it as a side next to steak something.

i love zucchini bread.

if you shred it and wring it out in a dish towel (really get as much water out as possible) - you can saute it up almost like hash browns. i like topped w/ a little paremsan.

you could always puree it up and sneak it into spaghetti sauce and such.

Re: I've got zucchini coming out my ears....any ideas?

I grew up on a farm and we always had tons! In addition to all of the things you mentioned, my mom used to also make:

- Zucchini Chocolate Cake (YUM! Super moist...I made one last year and the kids had no clue they were eating the vegetable they dispise...hehe)

- Zucchini Relish - excellent!

Google them, I'm sure you'll find a ton of receipes...if you can't I can always ask mom!

Zucchini Cole Slaw. Just reduce the amount of cabbage and replace that amount with shredded zucchini. You can choose how much to use. Or use only zucchini
