What Is Your Favorite Way to Use Up (A Lot Of) Zucchini?

It is just now beginning to get cold in our part of the world, but that hasn't stopped our zucchini plants. They are still bright and bursting with life! What do you do with zucchini and other ridiculously prolific summer squash?

There's zucchini bread and zucchini muffins, of course, but we like to just slap ours on the grill with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Delicious!

Here are a some more favorite zucchini recipes and ideas:

How do you use up that late-summer zucchini bounty — other than leaving it on the neighbor's front porch, of course?
