What To Do with All That Zucchini

It's that time of year!  Gardens overflow with that beautiful green squash.  I have at least two zucchini plants, which is already one too many, and I may have two more.  Last year I didn't have any zucchini and I actually missed it.  This summer I'm excited about making the most of my zucchini!  I've compiled a list of recipes here that go beyond the usual 'zucchini bread', and I'm determined to try every new one!  I'll continue to update this page as I find more recipes.

Tried and loved:

Chocolate Zucchini Bread (All Recipes)

Sausage Zucchini Bake (Kitchen Stewardship)

Zucchini Basil Lasagna (Cooking Light)

Can't wait to try:

Cheeseburger Zucchini Boats

Cinnamon Frosted Zucchini Bars (Shugary Sweets)

Zucchini Cakes (Pioneer Woman)

Zucchini Crisp (Joy in My Kitchen)

Zucchini and Goat Cheese Crustless Quiche (Food Network)

Zucchini Parmesan (Joy in My Kitchen)

What else can you do with zucchini?  You can slice it up and grill it, you can grate it and freeze it to make zucchini bread in the winter, you can saute it in olive oil with some garlic, and you can dehydrate it and throw it into winter soups. 

How do you like to use zucchini?
