Let’s kick things off with my Lemon Almond Pesto over Zucchini Noodles.  If you don’t have a spiralizer, you should get one soon!  Zucchini makes incredible noodles in no time at all.

Next up, my Deep Dish Crockpot Zucchini Lasagna.  I love cooking in my crockpot in the summertime.  It doesn’t heat up the kitchen like my oven, plus I can smell it cooking all day if I’m at home!

If you’re looking for an easy way to use zucchini, check out my Super Easy Zucchini Roll-ups!  These are so much fun to make with kiddos. I do the slicing with this mandoline and then let them help with the fillings.  Great for lunch on a hot day!

Are you a fan of grilling?  You’ll like my Grilled Zucchini Bundles.  There is no limit to what you can use in this dish. If it’s a vegetable and can be grilled, it works in this recipe!  Use what the farmers market has available.

If you enjoy baked pasta, you’ll like my Southwest Zoodle Bake.  It’s got all of the wonderful flavors of a baked pasta, but with zucchini instead of traditional pasta.

Here’s my take on a traditional fried food, the Zucchini Fritter.  I’ve made a baked version here, with a delicious accompaniment of Avocado Yogurt Dip.  Delicious!

      Hi Teri! Thanks for stopping by. My older recipes are not printable because when I wrote them, I used a blog platform that wasn’t friendly to plug-ins that made it possible. Now I have migrated to WordPress, so all current and future recipes do include a printable link. As time allows, I am going back through my recipes and updating.

      Thanks again for dropping by! Appreciate you reading. :)
