Have you tried grilling them? I parboil mine, then grill it. You can do kebabs or slice it and grill it, or wrap it up in foil packets w/ onions, little dab of olive oil . . .

I like mixing chunks of zucchini w/ diced tomatoes . . . add a little bit of sugar, and some Italian spices (depends on what spices you like) . . . simmer over low heat. I have a recipe for that somewhere . . . and Ratatouille . . . have you tried that? I will see what recipes I can dig up.

You can send some of that zucchini over here if you get tired of it, Hee Hee.

Zucchini contains a lot of water and when cooked does not freeze well, it tends to become mushy. My favorite was my Italian grandmothers.

2 medium zucchini's unpeeled and sliced 1/4" rounds
olive oil
4-5 cloves of chopped garlic
1 medium onion minced
1 large egg
1/4 c grated Romano cheese
1 small can tomato sauce
dash of Italian seasoning
s/p to taste

Rinse zucchini and pat dry, slice
lightly coat bottom of a medium frying pan with oo, add zucchini, cover & simmer 5 mins., discard the oo/water mixture from the pan
Add all of the ingredients except egg and cheese, cover & simmer 6 mins.
Mix raw egg and cheese into the zucchini mixture and simmer 30 seconds. Enjoy

I can't say that I have ever used the words "favorite" and "zucchini" at the same time. Some of these actually sound appealing.

Thank you anifani, I can't wait to try your recipes. All of the others sound great too. Now does anyone have a recipe for Zucchini Bread, I haven't had that sweet tasting bread since my g'ma made it and that recipe is gone. I am the only "girl" in the family (inc. my cousins) that cook and no one knows the recipe.
