I loved this recipe.

It’s a great way to use up all the zucchini from my garden, and it’s really easy to make.

The Parmesan cheese adds a nice nutty flavor, and the herbs make it really fresh tasting.

I found that I didn’t need to use as much oil as the recipe called for, so next time I’m going to try using half as much.

Definitely going into my dinner rotation!

The flavor is subtle, but the creamy texture of the zucchini paired with the parmesan makes it something special.

If you want to add more flavor, I’d suggest stirring in some garlic or herbs.

Overall, it’s an easy and delicious dish that pairs well with any protein of choice!

I’ve made these zucchini patties several times now and my family loves them.

I like that the Parmesan and mozzarella cheese add a nice savory flavor, plus it makes the patties extra cheesy and delicious.

The recipe is quite simple, but I would recommend adding some herbs or spices to really take them to the next level.

All in all, this is a great way to use up zucchini from the garden!

They were cheesy, flavorful, and not greasy at all.

I ended up using a mix of cheddar and Monterey jack cheese and added some dried oregano to the mix for extra flavor.

My husband absolutely loved them – I will definitely be making them again!

I decided to give these a try and was so happy with the results.

The zucchini garlic bites had the perfect amount of garlic and herbs.

The texture was light and crispy, while still maintaining a nice bite.

Even my picky eaters enjoyed them!

The marinara sauce added just the right amount of acidity to round out the flavors.

A great snack or appetizer that’s sure to please!

-Kathy Larkin, Charleston, South Carolina

6. Zucchini Tots

Zucchini Tots

I had to make these for my daughter who loves anything cheesy and crunchy.

My husband was skeptical but surprised by how good they tasted.

The key is grating the zucchini finely and making sure it’s not too watery so that you can get a good crisp when baking them.

We enjoyed them as a side dish, but I think they’d also be great as an appetizer with some dipping sauce on the side.

-Rachael Jenkins, Richmond, Virginia

7. Shredded Zucchini and Cheese Pasta

Shredded Zucchini and Cheese Pasta

My family absolutely loved this zucchini and cheese pasta.

The flavor was fantastic and the zucchini gave it a light, fresh taste.

The basil, mint, and garlic really tied the dish together perfectly.

We used white onion instead of yellow, but it still tasted great.

I would definitely make this again!

-Ella Rodriguez, Homestead, Florida

8. Cheesy Zucchini Bake

Cheesy Zucchini Bake

This cheesy zucchini bake was so delicious and creamy!

I especially liked the addition of the feta cheese, which gave it a salty kick.

I didn’t have Tipsy Wine Soaked Cheese, so I substituted it with some shredded parmesan which worked perfectly.

The combination of butter, eggs, and cheese really created a yummy texture.

Overall, this dish is super easy to make and will be a regular on our dinner table.

-Cathy Lomax, Buffalo Grove, Illinois

9. Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

I love the rich, almost custardy flavor of this zucchini bread.

The secret is in the grated zucchini, which adds moisture and flavor without having to add a ton of extra butter or oil.

I’ve made it with walnuts and currants, as the recipe suggests, but I think I like it better with chocolate chips!

It’s delicious warm out of the oven with a cup of coffee or tea.

-Josie Johnson, Austin, Texas

10. Stir-Fried Shredded Zucchini with Dried Shrimp

Stir-Fried Shredded Zucchini with Dried Shrimp

This was a fantastic dish.

The zucchini was cooked perfectly, so that it still had a slight crunch, while the dried shrimp added a wonderful salty umami flavor.

I really enjoyed the addition of carrots in this as well – they lent a subtle sweetness to the stir-fry.

As someone who often uses fresh shrimp in recipes, it was nice to use dried shrimp here and not have to worry about overcooking them.


-John O’Brien, Westminster, Colorado

11. Shredded Zucchini and Feta Sauté

This was a great, light side dish to a heavier main course.

We used regular feta instead of low-fat, but the flavor was still excellent.

The dill really gave it that little something extra, and the garlic added the perfect amount of spice.

I’m definitely making this again – probably with some basil and cherry tomatoes next time!

-Katie Anderson, Camden, Maine

12. Skinny Easy Cheesy Shredded Zucchini Casserole

We thought it was great as a side dish, but would also be excellent as a light main course.

-David Marshall, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

13. Shredded Zucchini and Parmesan Frittata

I’ve made this recipe a few times and each time I’m impressed.

The zucchini comes out so tender and the egg provides a nice binding texture.

I like to add a little more parsley and garlic than what’s listed in the ingredients, it really adds some flavor.

To make the frittata even better, I serve it with some sliced tomatoes or spinach salad.

It’s become one of my go-to recipes for busy weeknights!

-Nate Wheeler, Omaha, Nebraska

14. Zucchini Carrot Fritters

I found this recipe surprisingly delicious!

I thought it was the perfect combination of zucchini and carrot, with just the right amount of spices.

The only thing I changed was adding a bit more garlic powder.

The Parmesan cheese gave the fritters a nice flavor, but I think next time I’ll also add some feta or mozzarella for an extra cheesy punch.

Overall, they were easy to make and absolutely delicious!

-Tara Carr, Needham, Massachusetts

15. Shredded Zucchini Omelet

This omelet was a surprisingly light and flavorful treat.

The zucchini had an interesting texture that contrasted nicely with the eggs and cheese.

I added some chile salt to give it a bit of kick, and the tomatoes on top added a burst of color and flavor.

Overall, the perfect accompaniment to any meal!

-Kate Miller, Deerfield Beach, Florida

17. Cheesy Baked Zucchini Bites

These zucchini bites are a delicious and easy appetizer or side dish.

The combination of Panko, cheese, and garlic powder provides a really flavorful crunchy coating.

I found them to be slightly undercooked in the center even after baking for 25 minutes so next time I’ll bake them a few minutes longer.

These would also be great with some Parmesan added in.

-Danica McAllister, Omaha, Nebraska

18. Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini Muffins

These zucchini muffins are the perfect sweet treat for a summer morning.

I found them to be moist and flavorful, with plenty of zucchini in every bite.

I love that you can customize them too, by adding walnuts or dried cranberries (or both).

They really make it extra special. My only suggestion would be to up the spices a bit more; the flavor could be even more intense.

-Audrey Walsh, San Antonio, Texas

19. Zucchini Fritters with Feta and Dill

Zucchini Fritters with Feta and Dill

This was a great way to use up some of my summer zucchini!

The fritters had a nice balance of salty, tangy feta cheese and the mild sweetness of the zucchini.

The texture was lovely, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.

I think next time I’d add a little more garlic and maybe some paprika for some extra flavor.

I served these with lemon wedges, but they’re also good with tzatziki or sour cream.

-Brian Smith, Santa Monica, California

20. Lemony Grated Zucchini Salad with Tomatoes, Olives & Feta

Lemony Grated Zucchini Salad with Tomatoes, Olives & Feta

This zucchini salad is light, fresh, and perfect for summer.

It’s the kind of dish that you can make quickly with very little effort, but still looks and tastes amazing.

I used dill instead of oregano and feta instead of mozzarella as suggested in the recipe and both worked really well.

It also has a nice balance of tartness from the lemon juice and salty feta.

Definitely one I’ll be making again!
