Sometimes, when someone dislikes a certain ingredient, no matter how many different ways it is prepared, they still may not care for it. But, I'm always up for a challenge ;-)

How about a vegetable (zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, etc.) Lasagna, w/ bechamel sauce & freshly-grated nutmeg:

Or, a White Pizza w/ zucchini.

Zukes are one of those vegs like onions, you can bury if finely shredded, in just about anything. Except dirt. Then you'll just end up with more zukes.

I enjoy them when they are small, about eight inches long. I slice them lengthways, marinate them cut side down in olive oil and balsamic, garlic and herbs, then grill them on the bbq....

Since that thread, I found an interesting recipe for zucchini stuffed w/ little meatballs. (I would top it with tomato sauce and grated parm or mozzarella, instead of tomato soup.) I also like that the zuke is added to the meatballs. (You could make zuke meatballs & serve w/ spaghetti.)

I've made a number of zucchini fritters:

I've also made zucchini fritters topped with a homemade tomato sauce (one that I ran through the food mill so it was not chunky).

1 t dried oregano
1 T olive oil
salt, pepper

Mix until it resembles damp sand.

Bake at 400 for 45 minutes to an hour, until the zucchini tests done using a sharp knife.

I sometimes add a little onion, green pepper or sliced tomato. It depends on what I find in the refrigerator.
I do much the same thing, but I do it when I get really huge zucchini. I scoop out the middle and fill them with a mixture that is very similar to your recipe, and then bake same way.

I'm a sucker for any battered fried zucchini. I'll add them to the restaurant order if anybody else is willing to eat them too.

I really like zucchini pancakes. Unfortunately I think I lost/forgot my recipe.

Ok,ok, first of all I had no idea we disagree about something, second of all zucchini pancakes are good. Even my wife likes them. You are welcome to show up but not with a poached salmon, that is the worst waiste of fish.

ZUCCHINI SAUCE

INGREDIENTS:

1 large or 2 small zucchini (up to 250 gr.)

1 egg-hard boiled

1 clove of garlic

4 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

dried ground pepper

3 leaves of fresh mint

Wash, pill the zucchini. Cut it in cubes and boil it for 5 minutes. Drain it well. Put everything in a blender or food processor. Pour it in a saucer and put in in the refrigerator.

Serve it cold with any pasta dish, or just dip your roasted bread in it.

I too hate the green zucchini, but love the yellow summer squash. I love to slice it after washing it, and saute in butter.

Nooooooo, poor me! I forgot my favorite zucchini family recipe!
I need to eat more vegs and fish to pump up my central nervous system

And THANKS A LOT for all the support and recipes. Need to summarize them on my PC, in a new folder titled "I LOVE ZUCCHINI"

It's a Piedmontese recipe (my father's family came from Piedmont), "zucchine in carpione", similar to Veneto region "zucchine on saor" and Naples' "zucchine a scapece".
I have to look for the 3 precise recipes, however more or less you cut and fry zucchini, then let them cool down, then you marinate them with wine vinegar and let them rest.They keep well, you can eat them after 1 day or 2.
