Zucchini Serving Ideas:

If you have access to a spiralizer, you can cut zucchini into noodles (or “zoodles”) to use as a raw pasta for a lightened “pasta” dish.  Zoodles can be eaten raw, or quickly blanched for a softer texture. You can serve the zoodles like spaghetti with any sauce you like, or with shrimp and pesto like in this zucchini zoodle recipe.

Try roasting zucchini with mushrooms, sweet bell peppers, eggplant, and onion and serve as a side dish.

Zucchini is also great in a ratatouille (also baked), a frittata, or mixed into fritters for breakfast.

Zucchini is delicious grilled, served on its own with some olive oil, salt and pepper, or chopped into a grilled veggie salad.
