Calabacitas!

Calabacitas Recipe - Food.com

I use two pounds of zucchinis per batch. For such simple ingredients, this traditional dish is extremely tasty.

Here is another recipe for them.

Might be too late, but Craig came up with a side dish that uses zucchini and/or yellow squash. Use the food processor to finely grind up some Ritz crackers. Slice squash and onions thinly. Butter a casserole dish, make a layer of squash, then onions, S and P, sprinkle moderately with Ritz crumbs (just a nice sprinkle, not heavy as it gets a mealy texture if you use too much), dot with butter, repeat until full. Bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes until knife goes all the way to the bottom easily. Remove from oven, allow to cool a bit and serve.

You can always make fried zucchini slices too with a tempura-like batter or a beer batter. A long closed restaurant served them with a dip of soft whipped cream with S and P and horseradish folded in. Yummy!

Thanks for the great ideas, guys! I have about (now) 6 portions of lasagna, and a ziplock full of zucchini-like freezer pickles. Got them all used up!

Zuc pirogue filled with shrimp or crawfish etouffee! Maybe some jambalaya on the side. You might also stuff them with Crab Diablo.

I've grown zucchini. It was like Audrey II. It never ended, and ate everything else.
