But even if you only pick up a small amount at a time, these dishes make wonderful additions to the family dinner table.

Although zucchini is typically a side dish, it’s also good to include in casseroles that are the main dish. They not only have a pleasant flavor, but they also do well with a variety of seasonings.

I’ve made them with Italian dishes as well as Mexican foods.

Benefits of Zucchini

Zucchini is packed with powerful ingredients that will keep you healthy and feeling great. According to Dr. Axe, they’re low in calories and high in fiber and water content.

They have quite a few vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, vitamin B6, riboflavin, potassium, vitamin K, magnesium, and much more.

Why These are My Favorite Zucchini Recipes

When I went through all the ways I make zucchini, I thought about what made some my favorites. It basically boiled down to just a few things.

First, it had to taste good. Secondly, the dish had to be relatively easy to make. And finally, it had to be family approved.

In the past, my family consisted of my husband, two daughters, and myself. Occasionally, I fed friends, boyfriends, our parents, and other folks we enjoyed holiday dinners with.

Now that it’s just my husband and me, I’ve had to learn how to scale the size of the dish so we didn’t wind up with too much.

Yes, I know we can have leftovers, but I don’t want to load my freezer with too much of the same thing.

Best Desserts That Go with My Favorite Zucchini Recipes

After a wonderful meal that includes your favorite zucchini dish, you might want “a little something sweet” (in the words of my late mother-in-law).

This pineapple upside down cake is a delicious way to finish off your meal. Another delicious dessert is this granola fruit crisp.

Or if everyone in your family has different taste, try making individual mug cakes.
