Stuffed Zucchini Recipe #1

Looking for clever ways to use the bounty of zucchini from your garden?  This recipe’s interesting, variable (which I love!) and filling.

3 Zucchini
2 tablespoons minced onion
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup diced cooked tomatoes
Romano (or Parmesan or both!) cheese, shredded
Salt & pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of water to boil.  boil the zucchini (whole) for 8 minutes.  (Save the water and use it to water your indoor plants… it gives them a nutritional boost… way better than wasting it!)

Cut into halves lengthwise and scoop out the centers (so they look like little boats!)

Mix the pulp in with the remaining ingredients  (saving the cheese to sprinkle on top).  Fill the zucchini boats.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Bake in a 350 degree (F) oven for 15 minutes.

Of course, you’re encouraged to play with the ingredients (and seasonings) to your tastes!  (Have a combination you particularly enjoy? – then share it with us!)

NOTE: Because of a huge volume of inappropriate spam postings, I had to close of this blog to public postings.  However, I am very interested in any garden related recipes or comments that you’d care to share.  Please feel free to send them to me at:
