Italian Cucuzza Squash

When I was a child, I recall my Aunt Francis growing cucuzza's in her back yard. She would slice them, batter them, and fry them in oil for an appetizer or as a side dish. I've been searching for years for cucuzza seeds and finally found some several years ago. I've been growing my own ever since. Here are some recipe using of cucuzza.

I came up with this recipe to use up the number of cucuzzas I have growing in my garden. This spicy condiment is perfect on hot dogs or hamburgers. The relish can also be poured over a block of cream cheese and served as a dip with chips or crackers.

I created this recipe to use up the abundance of cucuzza squash I have growing in my garden. Cucuzza is a long green Italian squash with a mild nutty flavor. If you don't have cucuzza, you can substitute zucchini.

My Aunt Mae used to grow cucuzza's in her back yard when I was a little girl. Cucuzza is a long, green squash. She normally fried them up and served them with spaghetti every Sunday. I recently found this recipe for cucuzza cake. I made it last weekend and my family loved it... even the picky kids! My husband ate almost a whole cake for breakfast and asked me to bake some more! I guess I will be making this cake often! The original recipe said to bake for one hour, but my cakes were done at 45 minutes.

I came up with this recipe because I had so many ripe cucuzza squash in my garden. Cucuzza is a long green Italian squash. They are sometimes hard to find, but if you can find one, this dish is worth trying! I serve it with wheat pasta and grilled chicken or Italian sausage.

I've been searching for recipes to use up my abundance of cucuzza squash from my garden. There aren't many recipes out there using this unique squash. A cucuzza is a long green Italian squash with a bit of a nutty flavor. I adapted this recipe from a recipe in a Taste of Home Magazine called "Butternut Cream Pie". I changed it up a bit and I think it tastes similar to a pumpkin cream pie.

Inspired by Kim D and our common cucuza background :-) Cucuza is like a LARGE zucchini that grows past the size of a baseball bat if you let it. My grandmom used to get pretty creative with the stuff. Here was one of her recipes.

I grew up with this recipe. My grandmother would sometimes cook hers without the ground meat and would add a handful of fettucini to the pot.
