Stuffed Zucchini 5 Ways

July 25, 2011

With zucchinis flooding supermarket shelves, farmer's market stalls and backyard gardens everywhere, it is officially summer by my produce-calendar. Now, while I love this summer squash as much as the next person (okay, probably more), by this point in the summer I've exhuasted my arsenal of tasty zucchini recipes - so now, the search begins. It occurred to me that I need to find recipes that will plough through as many zucchini as possible (not elegant, I know) without being something like "Zucchini stuffed with Zucchini on a bed of spiralized Zucchini with a Zucchini sauce" because while monochromatic meals are fun, umm... yeah, maybe not so much. So what better way to use up your zucchini bounty than by stuffing, baking, grilling and loving 'em? Here are 5 fabulous recipes to inspire you - happy cooking!
