I bought one at the weekend and am now struggling to think of what to do with it.

I'm going to make a fritata with some of it but I can probably get about 4 meals out of it!

Sorry, rude mind, but your post has made me lol.
Enjoy your courgette!

Ps courgette muffins, courgette fritters?

is it big enough to stuff?

If so, vegetable stock, peppers, onions, bit of garlic, mince or veggie mince, chopped tomatoes - fry lightly to put into scooped out courgette. Pre cook the courgette halved in the oven for 10-15 mins with a little olive oil. Take out, put in filling and put back in the oven for half hour and serve with salad or rice.

or, lengthways slim strips lightly fried with butter and pinenuts and black pepper. lovely side dish.

well, it's not a friday night, but... <stops, checks OP>

lightly fried sounds nice as per BornSicky's suggestion?

Snurk at all these posts.

Just how big is it? Fnarr.

And is it in fact a marrow?

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with a dirty mind. grin

LOL well DP had the same idea when I picked it up grin don't know why he thought I'd want to do anything like that with veg hmm

It was labelled as a giant courgette but it could be a marrow!

Thanks for the ideas though...

Cake! Mmm, chocolate chip zucchini (as they call it where I grew up) cake. Mmmm...much nicer than carrot cake. Here's a link for muffins. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/zucchini-chocolate-chip-muffins/detail.aspx
