Zucchini Three Ways

This week I found 8 zucchini's at A&P for $1.94. You know the ones that they lump together because they are going bad.

I love zucchini and usually I just make zucchini bread or zucchini pancakes. This times I decided to change it up a bit.

This dish was just cut zucchini, with cooking spray in the pan, salt, pepper and grated cheese. Yummy!

This was one that one of early boyfriend's mother's used to make. You cut the zucchini long wise, put sauce and cheese over and put it in the oven for about 35 minutes until the zucchini is tender.
Then I diced up chicken and zucchini, put some EVOO in the pan, the chicken until is was still a little pink in the middle, add the zucchini, some seasoning, whatever you like. I put salt, pepper, pepper flakes, oregano, parsley, and Mrs. Dash® Fiesta Lime Seasoning Blend. It was awesome!


  1. Yum! I like zucchini too. I like the first recipe you listed. It is simple enough that I can try it. What kind of cheese do you use?
    My fave way to cook zucchini is with a can of diced tomatoes and some onions sauted in EVOO with lots of salt pepper and garlic.

  2. Jackie, I used Parmesiano Reggiano, my favorite grated.

    I will have to try your recipe.

    I am not a zucchini lover but that picture with the chicken. Looks delicious!!!

  4. They all look good, but the third one would probably be really good over some pasta!! MMMM, now you're making me really hungry. With The Hubs new diet, he really has to limit his pasta intake, because of his liver... and pasta is his favorite food, he could eat it every day. He doesn't like the whole wheat stuff, and neither do I really. Oh, well, portion control is what it comes down to.
