I like to get them small to medium in size. I wash them, chop into small pieces, along with onions, green peppers, yelow squash, any kinds of veggies that are at the farmers market...even carrots, and saute them. I add to browned italian sausage, mix. Add marinara sauce, italian seasoning, garlic, whatever spices you like, fresh or dried. Simmer. The last 30 minutes, add chopped fresh tomatoes. Last 10 minutes, add sliced mushrooms. It can be served alone with toasted italian or french bread, or served over pasta. It can be frozen for use later. A family favorite!!

Wow!!!!! What great recipes! Yup, zucchini is easy to grow and we love that fact and our neighbors and friends are glad we grow it!
Thanks Slimdrum for the chocolate cake recipe link. I will try this soon. And thanks Dunks for your recipe. I tink I might try this too.
We currently have some voles wrecking havoc in our neighborhood. They have gotten a couple of my flowers and a new squash plant we tried this year, called a papaya pear squash. I sprayed a pet friendly rodent deterent yesterday. I am against any poisons. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of these pesky rodents?
I sure hope these voles don't take out my zucchini plant!

We eat tons of (small) zucc all year round. I just slice them lengthwise, I may or may not brush them will a little olive oil (a teeny tiny amount), and grill them on the bbq. Add some grilled mushrooms (marinated in lemon juice, lemon zest, and garlic) and Indian flavoured lentils and we have a healthy, delicious, fat-free meal! We love them just "naked", with maybe a bit of salt.
