This is tougher. I'll try it. Tougher part is waiting a whole night!

Margi, thanks for this olive oil frying step, which really can rehabilitate quite everything!

Thanks Caslon, this is a nice and clean idea! And since I'm trying to prepare some fish meatballs today, I'll give it a try.

Try making a gratin.

Thinly slice 3 or 4 small zucchini and place them in a shallow baking dish, drizzle them with olive oil and top with the following mixture.

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs
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.

Luca, there was a thread on zucchini/summer squash in July. I think that was when you were busy attending to life. Here's the link again in case you missed it:

You can always chop them up and add them to your tomato-based sauces you make for pasta.

Luca, you can also try this...
Slice the zuchinni (either medallions or lengthwise), dip in milk or egg wash, dredge in corn meal mixed with Old Bay seasoning, deep fry till golden. Salt to taste.
Now a word about Old Bay seasoning. It is a blend of spices that is mighty good on a wide variety of dishes. Old Bay Seasoning

It may or not be available on your side of the Big Wash. You can make a reasonable facsimile with these ingredients:

1 tablespoon ground bay leaves
2 1/2 teaspoons celery salt
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground mace
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Old Bay is good on most everything....'cept maybe ice cream.

Even people that hate zucchini love this casserole.
I made this for a get together and one person called me wanted the recipe and couldn't believe she ate zucchini.
Zucchini Casserole

Saute Together until softened and then remove from heat
6 cups thin sliced zucchini
1 cup chopped onions
1 stick of butter (or margerine)
Add to vegtable mixture :
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup as is from can
(cream of celery, cream of chicken will work also)
1 cup shredded sharp cheese (Xtra sharp good also )
Mix together (not according to pkg directions)
stove top stuffing mix for chicken or turkey and the seasoning pkg together.
(nothing else - you are just using the dry bread and sesonings)
Note: Depending on if you buy stove top brand or a store brand the seaoning package might already be mix in
place 1/2 of the stuffing mix in bottom of a casserole dish or baking dish
add the vegtable mixture
top with remaining stuffing mixture
Bake 350 20 - 30 min uncovered

Zucchini Spread, a.k.a. Zucchini Caviar.

Ingredients:
Zucchini – 1.5 kilogram that is about 3 pounds, I would scoop the seeds if they are really big
Tomato paste – 140 gram, about 5 ounces
Onions – 2
Vinegar – 1-2 table spoon
Salt – 1 tea spoon
Ground black pepper – tea spoon
Sugar – 1 tea spoon
Oil – 100 gram, about 3.5 ounces.

Zucchini, peel, slice, and bake for about 20 minutes at 350 or so.
Chop them up pretty finally (no not finally, you know in small pieces, however it is spelled, “Word” keeps changing my spelling, darn), I say use food processor or meat grinder, whatever is easiest. Personally I would use meat grinder, it is the perfect consistency for the spread.
Dice the onions and saut till just lightly golden brown.
Add tomato paste and mix, add chopped zucchini and saut for about 20 minutes mixing every once in a while. Add vinegar and seasoning, you can use your own seasoning, I for one do not use black pepper on anything, or almost never, and I would also add paprika. Mix well, let it cool. Serve at room temperature.

I like zucchini fried, too. I actually cut them in thick coin shaped slices, batter fry in oil until crispy, and dip in marinara sauce.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to say that this is the only way I eat Zucchini, I hate them otherwise, so Luka, you might want to try this.

Zucchini boats are a very popular appetizer a Mexican friend serves in his restaurant. Young zukes cut in half and scooped out, filled with a finger of cream cheese, sprinkled with grated parm, ladeled with tomato sauce, and baked. They're nice and gooey.
