*Spicy Turkey Recipe - Picture the warm days of summer and late fall....this is when I am like a squirrel. Harvesting and storing. You know those jumbo sized zucchini that stay on the vine too long that you can only find at farmers markets? I buy them up, cut them in half and freeze them. These are great for stuffing. Here is one of our favorite stuffings that I'm sure you could use for a casserole or tacos:

1 pound ground turkey
1 T butter
2 cloves minced garlic
1 chopped onion
1 T chopped basil
1 T paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp salt

Saute the onion and garlic with the butter in a large skillet. Remove and set aside. Brown the ground turkey in the same skillet. Add spices and the onion/garlic mixture to the skillet and heat thoroughly. Now, this is when I usually put this mixture in the
zucchini shells, but you could use it for tacos (it's spicy) or a casserole with sliced zucchini and top the mixture with shredded cheese and bake.
