Default Re: What to do with Zucchini?

I found this one:

Source: from the River Cottage Cookbook (from the WWW)

Another way to utilize summer squash. Consider adding chicken or beef medallions, bits of ham or prosciutto or bacon. Grape tomatoes halved would work.

Servings: Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pound zucchini, chopped
1 tablespoon cream
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
8 ounces pasta
Salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
Put a pot of water on to boil for the pasta, salt, and cook pasta until al dente. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over moderate heat. Add garlic and zucchini. Season with salt early in the cooking to help draw out moisture. Stir whenever zucchini begin to stick to pan, and do not allow them to brown more than a shade. Keep cooking until they are no longer watery and begin to fall apart. Mash with a potato masher. Stir in cream and Parmesan, and let bubble until the cream is incorporated and has reduced slightly. Drain the pasta, toss with the sauce, and serve, passing more Parmesan at the table.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I use zucchini when making homemade spaghetti sauce.

Using in homemade salsa is also another good use.

I found a zucchini in my garden that got overlooked. It was nearly tow feet long and as thick as my forearm. I put it to good use:

Zucchini Fritters

Some lovely recipes here. Last night my housemate made zucchini spaghetti, which he served with a vegetable bolognese - it was delicious and carb free for those who are concerned about that.

Add sliced zucchini (kinda thin), plenty of salt & pepper, a dash of cayenne, and whatever Italian herbs you have around. Toss this over high heat so that the zuke slices cook quickly and get just a hint of golden on the edges, but don't get soggy.

Remove from the heat and toss in a handful of grated parmesan.

This is attractive if you use a mixture of zucchini and yellow squash.
I just found a photo of my attempt at this dish.

It was delicious, but I didn't get any "hint of golden on the edges". Probably didn't have the heat high enough. I will make this again!

I LOVE the recipes and photos of Zucchini fritters from SassMuffin and Vyapti!!! I definitely would like to make some!
