Hey Amy I wanted to give you a crazy recipe my dad made up when we were kids. Every year we’d have those HUUUUGE zuke’s you’ve got and this is a great way to get through them. This is a total hippie recipe which means its very inexact but works almost always.

(Core out most of the seeds if the zuke is HUGE and the seeds have gotten hard)

Choose 3 or 4 of those huge zukes or 5-8 little wimpy ones (like we have here in CA grocery stores). Peel and slice, doesn’t matter how thin, they just cook down. You can mix in yellow squash too.

Throw the zukes into a large hot skillet full of olive oil and 1 softened yellow onion. Cover.

Start a pot for one package of pasta.

Stir and simmer until zukes become extremely squishy and saucy.

Throw pasta into boiling water.

Cut up one or two packages of bacon (or turkey bacon or vegan bacon), or leave out all together, though the taste won’t be as rich.

Simmer this all together until bacon is cooked through.

Take fully-cooked pasta, DRAIN, and toss it into the zuke mixture.

Turn the heat on the burner up a bit and then throw in two beaten eggs (I’m not kidding). Toss the whole mixture until egg seems to be cooked (not slimy).

salt and pepper to taste.

Put some parmasean cheese on top if you want.

Yummy – zucchini bread! Of course, by the time the growing season is over, I’m sick of zucchini!
