Ten Places to Hide Zucchini

Two years ago I posted Ten Ways to Leave your Zucchini.
Last year the garden hardly produced any zucchini at all.
This year, we again have a bumper crop. Since you can simply click to find 10 Ways to Leave (and you don't have to slip out the back, Jack), I'll take another angle this time.

Beyond the Muffins: Ten Places to Hide Zucchini
1. Spaghetti sauce; the chunkier the better

2. Soup

3. Salads

4. Meatballs or Meatloaf

5. Lasagna

6. Scrambled eggs or omelets

7. Noodles/ Rice/ Orzo

8. Tacos, burritos, or quesadillas

9. Fruit cobbler or crisp

I have five, count 'em, FIVE (5!) large zucchini squash in the kitchen right now. I've already frozen quite a bit; these must be cooked or baked soon. Would you believe, I just baked chocolate zucchini bread muffins, too?

I have so many I've started feeding them to the chickens, courgette cake is nice though - use carrot cake recipe and substitute the courgettes (zucchini)
