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

Cut it length wise. Scrap out some of the flesh. Make meatloaf and add the flesh you scraped out. Place the meatloaf into the zucchini. Cook until meat is done and zuccuhini is soft.

This also works with an eggplant. Very yummy.

I always cut up zucc's in my veggie soup. Make it in a crockpot. I put tomatoes, zucchini, potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, peas, corn (any veggie you want really). Add some salt, pepper and maybe some italian seasoning and let it cook all day. No extra water, just good ole veggies, I always use fresh (except the corn and peas) but you could used canned tomatoes if you wanted.

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

I have a great recipe for Poor Man's Crab Cakes that I will post later this evening. Basically you just shred the Zucchini and use it in place of crab meat. It tastes exactly like crab cakes. DH wouldn't have even know if I didn't tell him.

We make a zucchini quiche that's really good. Shred it, and cook it in some butter with a little diced onion then add eggs & shredded cheese and pour into a pie pan lined with crescent rolls patted into a crust shape. Most times I bake the crust part way before adding the filling. Anyway, bake for 15-20 min until set. Very yummy!

My mom makes a pasta dish with zuchinni and its to die for.

Make up any kinda pasta your family likes.
Shred 3-4 med. zuchinnis
saute the zuchinni with some olive oil and garlic, a little salt and pepper until tender
add the pasta
add a couple of slashes of milk
add a cup or 2 of mozarella cheese and stir until the cheese is all gooey and melty
SO GOOD!

You all have given me such really great ideas....I'm going to print them all off and keep them for next summer, so I don't have to ask this again! Thanks Mamas!
