This isn't exactly like a lasagna since there aren't any pasta noodles. Instead of the pasta, there are layers of zucchini and cucumber. I accidently peeled a cucumber the first time I tried making a zucchini lasagna and ended up with this which tasted pretty good to me. You can make the whole thing out of just zucchini if you want. I use Fat Free Organic Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms from Trader Joe's.
I'll be honest-I never tried this relish when my grandma served it because I wasn't too keen on the look of it. This year I "inherited" 15 zucchini and have been told I'll be "inheriting" more. Out of desperation, I decided to make a batch of her relish. I reasoned that everyone else in the family loves it-I'll give it to them. Now that I've actually eaten it-I'm not sharing. This is not only a great way to use up a bumper crop of zucchini it's a great condiment!
These have been a long time family favorite, use only dry breadcrumbs for this as fresh will not stick to the zucchini, the cayenne is only optional add in for some heat --- if desired you may slice the zucchini into rounds instead if sticks--- also see my recipe#244592
A south beach friendly way to use any extra your garden is giving, try to pick them when they are less than 3 inches in diameter. Use lo-fat sour cream for phase one, but it tastes good no diet at all!
A nice addition to burgers or hot dogs. And very pretty for gift giving. You could substitute green bell peppers for the red ones, but it wouldn't be as attractive. You can also substitute zucchini for part of the cucumbers if desired.
I found this recipe on the internet and can't wait to try it !! It is supposed to taste like apple crisp. I have never made this recipe, but am posting it here to share with you all and to keep it safe for future use. If you try it before I do, let me know how it turns out!
Soft cake-like cookie. The vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate chip combination really add to the flavor. The color is a bit pale so don't expect a golden brown cookie. This is a hit with the gals at the office. I make them every zucchini time.
This is for all of you "eggplant parmesan" people! And especially for those of you with an abundance of garden fresh zucchini to use up, like myself! This is delicious! I like it even better than eggplant parm now and I didn't think that were possible! And even my husband who does not like eggplant loved this!
