    big ones
    you can slice and cut the seeds out
    make veal parmesian except use the zuk in place of veal

    you can also make an apple pie with no apples

    All the recipes sound great we take em slice em up with a bunch of onions and cook them down slow. With the big ones take a couple of lbs of hamburger season well and brown, take several of the large deseed if real big and cook down add healthy amount of rotel tomato for 8/10 mins then add the ground meat to the mix. If to much liquid drain as need then place mixture into large baking dish cover with grated cheese and bake till cheese melts into the mix remove and add additonal layer of cheese. Great meal. If you want to fire it up add peppers as needed.

    I like to slice mine in half and then in 1/2 cubes. Fry one strip of bacon, remove. Keep grease in pan and add zucchini. I like mine cooked soft yet not mushy. Before done add salt and pepper to taste and about 1 tablespoon of sugar for every 4 zuchinnis. Crumble bacon and serve.

    Another favorite is canned Zucchini Relish....yum with hot dogs, tuna sandwiches or anywhere pickle relish is liked.

    Calabacitas;

    We use them in a dish called calabacitas ("little squashes").

    Two or three squashes, diced.
    Two or three ears of corn, kernals sliced off.
    One onion, diced.
    Two or more New Mexico Green Chiles, prefered roasted but fresh is okay. (other chiles can be used). Depending on eaters palate.
    Olive oil.
    Salt and pepper to taste.

    Start with sauteing the corn. Once the corn starts to cook well. Add everything else and cook until the onions have sweated well. Use as a side dish for about anything.

    Cut zucchini and yellow squash into 1/2" slices. Coat the bottom of a casserole dish with a little olive oil, then put a layer of z/ys. Salt and pepper, then pour 1/3 c. cream over the z/ys. Then add a layer of romano, parmesan and mozzarella cheese. Cover that with a layer of breadcrumbs. Repeat with up to two more layers of z/ys, s&p, cream, cheese and breadcrumbs.

    Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until the top is a nice golden brown.

    It's delectible.

    Slice the whole zuk lengthwise making long, thin, flat strips. Then make a lasagne(sp?) replacing the zuks for the noodles.
