I love zuchinni pancakes. You can add shredded potatoes/hashbrowns, if you like and serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and sour cream

Grate zucchini and peeled potatoes wring out the moisture in a towel, add scallions, parmesan cheese, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper, flour, and eggs, mix together, and saute in oil. Grated carrots are a colorful and tasty add in too.

Zucchini white pizza. Add on whatever you like - roasted red peppers, or sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, black olives.

Zucchini spaghetti - cut the zukes in spaghetti-like strands with a mandolin, toss with lemon juice, s&p - as a side.

Saute round slices of zukes in evoo & butter, sprinkle with nutmeg, s&p, and mix with toasted walnuts - as a side.

Tomato (Mozzarella/Parmesan) Pie in Zucchini Crust. YUM. YUM.

Zucchini croistini - I have a recipe in my files. Will take another look and post.

This sounds good, kats! Do you spread the cream cheese and nuts on the grilled slices, then roll, jellyroll style?

I have a ton of basil, too, so the pesto sauce idea appeals to me, as well.

We love zucchini, sauteed with onion,garlic in evoo then at the end we give the whole thing a heavy sprinkle of parmesan cheese. They are also great cooked the same way with the cheese and onions,garlic, then add 4-5 beaten eggs and just mix a scrambled egg and zucchini plate, we sprinkle this with some toasted and buttered bread crumbs...My family also loves them stufffed,but, that is a JOB so we don't have them very often...Usually birthdays or holidays.

I like to cut the zucchini into French fry size sticks and dip them in a beaten egg and then dredge them in flour seasoned with Italian Seasoning and garlic powder. Then I cook them in oil in a frying pan.

Another favorite is thickly sliced and sauteed in olive oil and then sprinkle with Italian seasoning and celery salt.

This is a good recipe for frittata and uses a good amount of zucchini, especially if you're being taken over by them!

3-4 cups thinly sliced zucchini
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped basil
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
2-3 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese or your
1/2 cup baking mix (Bisquick or Trader Joe's)
4 eggs,lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a 9"X13"X2" glass baking pan. Put sliced zucchini into a large bowl and add remaining ingredients one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Pour into prepared pan and sprinkle with about 1/4 cup more cheese. Bake for 25 minutes until firm and lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool. You may chill and then cut the frittata into small squares for appetizers or serve larger pieces warm as a side dish. This frittata freezes very well and can be warmed in the microwave. (I make lots and freeze it to use as appetizers during holidays!)

Very simple side dish... slice in half the long way, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic salt or lemon pepper or Emeril's Essence or just plain salt and pepper, grill for about 5-10 minutes on each side (time depends on how done you like it). I often have this with grilled pork chops, steak, or most anything else I cook on the grill.

Yes, it's sort of like that. But don't put too much cream cheese, or it will kill the eggplant or zucchini taste! Let me know if you tried and if you liked it. It's one of my favorite appetizers ever! :)

If you want to see how it looks like, I found a picture I posted on my fotolog a long time ago. It's with eggplant, instead of zucchini, but it works with any: http://www.fotolog.com/kats/?pid=2844554
