What Can I Make with Zucchini? Here are 30 Delicious Ways to Eat It!

The answer - tons of things! Back in the day, I really didn't know there was much you could do with zucchini. I thought all it was good for was cooking in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper or grilling it. A few years ago when I started growing it, I had to get creative and realized there are so many other great ways zucchini can be prepared. Zucchini can be a main course, side, or even a tasty dessert! If you happen to be growing zucchini this year too, you might have it coming out of your ears. I have a large bowl of zucchini and yellow squash on my kitchen table right now. There are many recipes that I already know I love with zucchini, and I searched the web for some more. I'm definitely excited about trying out some zucchini fries, which I've been wanting to do since last summer. I think it's time. And I think it's time for you to get wild and crazy in the kitchen with your zucchini too!

*Last night I made the summer pasta dish with zucchini, yellow squash, corn, and basil. It was delicious! Planning on making some zucchini bread today. Yummy!
