More recipes from the 2011 Zucchini Smackdown

You can never have too much zucchini -- only too few recipes.

Here are a few more from local cooks who participated in this year's Seville Farm Market Zucchini Smackdown. All three happen to be Seville Farm Market vendors, so you can enjoy their other great products each week.
