Whether you’ve got an abundance of zucchini from your CSA or it’s just one of your summer favorites, here are three ways to incorporate zucchini into your meatless meal tonight.

Start with Bobby’s Grilled Zucchini Salad with Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette and Shaved Romano. Zucchini sliced lengthwise grills up beautifully. Just toss with some Romano cheese, crunchy pine nuts and tangy vinaigrette to create a grill-master side dish.

For dinner, try Food Network Magazine’s Capellini With Spicy Zucchini-Tomato Sauce (pictured above). Pasta is cooked al dente and tossed with San Marzano tomatoes, zucchini, red pepper flakes and fresh basil.

Finally, celebrate the end of the day with Claire’s Zucchini-Tini, made with sake, gin, zucchini and simple syrup.
