The Zucchini that Got Away

I like to eat fresh zucchini, just lightly sauteed with fresh grated parm. I pick them when they're small and tender, unless they hide under the big leaves like the big one here that got away. Some people grate it and freeze it for muffins and breads. I don't do that. I don't think I've ever cooked up muffins or bread with zucchini. Maybe you have a recipe to share?

I cut the tiny ones in very thin slices and eat them with salad, yummy!
Hard to believe but yes, in my garden too, there is always a huge one which stays hidden under leaves!

I like that idea of putting them in a salad. I guess I always cook them, but really there's no need, the small ones are so tender and sweet, I'm going to pop some in my salad today.
