Tina Archambault I just made stuffed zucchini the other day! You cook your ground beef with onions & garlic, once done stain it, put it back in your pot, add fresh diced tomatoes, peppers, fresh parsley, basil & oregano, a bit of cayenne pepper & chili powder, let simmer. Cut zucchinis lengthwise, scrape out middle so it's like a bowl. Chop what you scraped out into small pieces & add to the meat & veggie mix & let simmer. Stuff zucchinis with mixture & top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 10 mins & broil for about 2 mins.

Drain liquid off the cooked zucchini, add spaghetti sauce, the ground beef, noodles, copped onions, bell peppers and some Italian seasonings. Simmer until zucchini is completely done. When serving top with a bit of Parmesan, Romano or mozzarella cheese. Sorry I don't have any exact measurements here, I cook my batches in a large canning pot using the huge zucchini I grow, it takes a pot that big just to steam them down!

Linda Walter try to buy straight zucchini. it is easier to core out. I have made these for so many years, I have no recipe. cut just a tad off each end of zucchini. the cut the zucchini in half. take a corer, and core out the inside flesh of the zucchini. do, not, cut into the skin. I guess I usually use 6 of the, which makes 12 halves. cause they are so foo leftover. set up each zucchini in a large pan. line them up. so the are standing. one or 2 shakes of garlic salt inside each I/2. the squeeze fresh lemon juice inside each core. . now you can choose beef or my preference is ground lamb....mix the meat up with salt and pepper and a good hand full of rice. take some meat and roll it into a cylinder, and put it inside the core, pushing down so the meat is stuffed inside. continue till all are stuffed. if you have meat left, make small meat balls, to cook in pan. now you can lay the zucchini down. add a very large can of diced or crushed tomatoes. Put lid on pan and cook on low/med heat till done. maybe 45 minutes. the leftover flesh of the zucchini in a saucepan. ad a can of stewed tomatoes and a small diced onion and cook on low heat, stirring every so often......leftovers just cook to reheat in saucepan.
