  2. We eat lots of them here, I use a few (smaller!) ones grated in spaghetti bolognese to thicken the sauce and in my bacon and egg pie, grated and into the pan along with the bacon. we also eat them steamed, and I remember having stuffed ones as a child.

    Have a look at, an Aussie recipe site. We call them zucchini and there will be heaps of related recipes there. 🙂
