We love zucchini stir fried with onions, kinda like they do in the Japanese restaurant where they cook on the table top. Just put a little oil in your pan and cut the zucchini and onion in thin strips and stir fry. You can add some toasted sesame seeds and a tiny dash of Asian sesame oil. It's really good.

I also like to use zucchini in squash casseroles. Usually with some cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup and some pepperidge farm stuffing mix.

veggie kabobs on the grill are tasty, mix it with your zuccini, and other veggies you like, add some italian dressing for some flavor. You could also layer it in a veggie casserole with some eggplant, onion, summer squash, various cheeses and seasonings, and a sauce that you like ( like a lasagna). Zuccini flowers are also great! You can fry them up like fritters (egg wash, flower, and fry).

flower = flour sorry about that

Trim the ends, cut them in half lengthwise, brush them and the pan with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast in a 500F oven 12 minutes, turn and roast for another 12 minutes.

Greek zucchini (had to type that several times - they're courgettes to me!) - just have to try that. My first thought was Kolokythopitta. But I'm not going to add a recipe for a Greek dish right after a recipe posted by pdswife! Do you have a recipe for this pie, pdswife? I have some fyllo pastry nestling at the back of my fridge just waiting to be used. I have a recipe already, but I'd feel honoured to be able to make one to a recipe by you!
