How to make it

  • Cut zucchini in half lengthwise.
  • Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4" of flesh intact.
  • Discard pulp.
  • You can use a teaspoon to scrape out the pulp and seeds, then once most of the pulp has been removed, use the spoon to scrape out any remaining seeds.
  • Place zucchini shells on a greased, foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle zucchini with salt and pepper.
  • Saute the meat, garlic, cayenne or Tobasco sauce, onion, green bell pepper and mushrooms, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Drain any fat.
  • Add diced tomatoes and gently fold.
  • Fill zucchini with mixture.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350ยบ 30-35 minutes or until zucchini is tender.
  • Uncover, top with cheese and bake to melt cheese, about 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Makes 6 servings

  • I think I'd probably use another type of cheese next time. The parmesan doesn't melt enough. Cheddar, mozzarella, Tex Mex or even Swiss cheese might be nice. If you're counting calories, low fat or skim milk cheese can also be used. This recipe is great served as a side dish with any meal. It is also nice served with a gravy.

    This was awesome easy, changed it up a bit - not fond of peppers, used chipote tabasco - could not find my regular. It gave it a somewhat Mexican flavor, used mozza and served with rice and sauted swiss chard (wee bit of lemon and butter) on the side. Super yummy!
