Pulling out some huge zucchini like this 3.5lb beauty.

zucchini lasagna recipe
#1 Zucchini lasagna. per this recipe. one big zuke is all that is needed for a tray. Not exactly healthy but it sure was tasty.

#2 Zucchini kabob.
brush on olive oil mixed with garlic, salt, black pepper, and garlic. Grill. I like to also sprinkle on some Cajun seasoning.

#3 Breaded fried zucchini. Adjusted from this recipe. add crushed red pepper and increase the amount of salt. an alternative is to buy powdered just add water tempura mix. I fry them in Canola. Keep your oil for next time.

#4 Zucchini Parmesean. Amelia's creation. peel slice and then boil a huge zuke. egg and then bread crumbs. baked with mozzarella. Show with hydroponic basil and garden roma caprese. as well as garden beefsteak tomato pasta sauce.

#5Chocolate Zucchini Cake. Discussed in this post. Chocolate zucchini cupcakes with hops. just don't add the hops and put it in a tray.


  1. Hi Mike, My zuchinni didn't do well this year...or last. I think i am getting some kind of bugs in the vine. Next year I am going to put lots of diatomacious earth around the vine. Thanks for the recipes!

  2. Good luck with them. I feel that they are usually space well used. Though I did have a few die on me this year also in a more moist shady part of the yard. Of course you only one plant to do well to get more then you need.
