Despite the fact that I’ve cut back on my garden I am still growing a healthy crop of zucchini! I love zucchini and I always grow more than I need. How do I use it up? Here are a few of my favorite ways:


Favorite Zucchini Recipes:


Zucchini and Parmesan Crusted Chicken

This recipe has been adapted from a recipe I tried using HelloFresh. Although the original recipe was good I felt it needed a little something more so I added some minced garlic! Why have I never thought of topping a chicken breast with shredded zucchini? The zucchini keeps the chicken moist and tender while it is cooking. The addition of garlic and Parmesan gives a delicious flavor to the mix.Zucchini Parmesan Crusted Chicke


Zucchini Fettuccine Alfredo

I love using my spiralizer to create zucchini noodles. I use the noodles in all sorts of ways. Sometimes I use zucchini noodles in place of pasta when serving spaghetti and meatballs. I’ve recently been experimenting to create a Fettuccine Alfredo using zucchini noodles and a light sauce. This extra light Alfredo sauce for pasta gets its silkiness from fresh ricotta and grated Parmesan cheese. I think it’s a winner! Perfect all by itself of serve as a side dish with grilled steak.Zucchini Fettuccine


Corn Zucchini Salsa

I love zucchini and I always plant more than I need in my garden. As a result I am always looking for new ways to use it up! This is a new recipe for me this year! Serve this delicious salsa with tortilla chips or try it on top of grilled chicken breasts or fish. It’s got just the right amount of zip!Corn Zucchini Salsa


Chocolate Zucchini Cake

One of my favorite ways to use up zucchini is making a Chocolate Zucchini Cake. This recipe is especially good if you have some oversized zucchini that need to be used up. A friend of mine shared this recipe with me years ago and we’ve been enjoying it ever since.Chocolate Zucchini Cake


Zucchini Relish

The same friend that shared her chocolate zucchini cake recipe also gave me this wonderful relish recipe. I don’t even buy relish any more as this is the family favorite. Another wonderful way to use up zucchini! Making this relish is a two-day affair so be sure to plan accordingly.Zucchini Relish



Zucchini Quiche

A friend I worked with shared this recipe with me years ago. I have made it every summer since then and we still enjoy it! You can serve it as a complete dinner along with a salad or use it as a side dish.Zucchini Quiche

Have made and canned zucchini relish and you are so right; it’s delicious and sure does beat the store bought relish.
I also love eating zucchini baked French fries.

I often interchange summer squash and zucchini. My mother-in-law makes a great casserole with summer squash, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, top with some bread crumbs and bake, can top with a little cheese as well. 🙂
