Jamie Oliver has a recipe for Courgette bread in one of his books (uses about 6 courgettes I think)

Put them in a frittata, summer risotto with other veggies.

They will keep for a while in the fridge anyway won't they?

Chop, roast with oil and seasoning, then freeze to add to all those italian recipes.

Courgette bread/cake is fabulous. Bit like carrot cake.

4 courgettes, one aubergine, 2-3 onions, maybe some mushrooms or peppers (all diced)

fry together with garlic

add 2-3 tins tomatoes

cook for ages (can do in oven or top)

serve with lots of greated cheese and naan bread/flat bread

freezes reasonably well, goes slightly mushy

(can zap leftovers and add cream and make a pasta sauce)
