Nice change from too soft squash. I actually threw these together from with 10 or 12 excitedly chatting people "helping me in the kitchen". I agree that they should be precooked a tad. I also left them in the oven a liitle too long when melting the cheese so that a lot of it ran out. Think I'll scoop out a canoe shape cutting off the ends after. It's a keeper!!

This is a new regular at my house. I broiled them for about 5 minutes about 6-7 inches away from the broiler and they turned out great. Just the right amount of crunch and delicious too! I can't wait to serve them to guests. Thanks Mirj!

These were very good Mirj! I made them for my low carb breakfast. I might take another reviewers suggestion and slightly cook the zucchini first next time. Thanks for another great low carb alternative!
