Ciao, I’m Liz! Born and raised in an Italian home with a big backyard garden, I was no stranger to using fresh vegetables in our home-cooked meals.

I created this cookbook because I wanted a way to share my collection of zucchini recipes that taste absolutely amazing! They are all Italian-inspired and in fact, I make many of them year round, not just during summer months. Each recipe is my own, either passed down from family or recipes I created myself while having fun in the kitchen.

Zucchini is frequently used in Italian cooking and I think it’s extremely underrated. My goal is to inspire you to try new recipes using this amazing vegetable. Feel free to even use it as a guide to modify and create your own unique recipes. I’m so excited to share these recipes with you!



“Absolutely loved this zucchini recipe. Instead of breadcrumbs I used cheese Ritz crackers just to add a little more cheese flavor. Even the grandkids loved this!”



Are these recipes healthy?

Zucchini is full of vitamins and minerals making it a healthy vegetable to eat, especially when raw or lightly cooked. My Zucchini Raw Salad with Figs is a perfect example.

Are these recipes easy to follow?

Yes! Who has time for complicated and difficult recipes these days? I’m a strong believer that the best Italian cooking is simple Italian cooking. For every recipe I guide you through each step of the recipe with notes and tips to make it even easier.

Can I adjust quantities?

Yes, these recipes can be doubled as needed. Servings per recipe are included. Also, feel free to experiment and adjust to suite your tastes as well. Some people for example love garlic and will add more while others may reduce the amount used.

Do these recipes use lots of hard-to-find ingredients?

No, not at all. I believe that with Italian cooking it’s important to use fresh quality ingredients that are readily available.
