Balsamic Stuffed Round Zucchini

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by LilKiwiChicken

I have based this recipe on one round zucchini only (as I only have to feed two people), but the recipe multiplies easily. You can also use the mixture to stuff marrow or thin zucchini.

We were gifted with a round zucchini, which we'd never seen and were delighted to find this recipe. I had some special balsamic that I'd been saving as well, and so I used it here. This was delicious!

  2. Put the tomatoes, chopped mushroom, garlic, onion and oregano into a bowl. Mix to combine and add the balsamic vinegar, mixing until well combined. Leave to stand for 30 minutes.

  5. Grind over salt and pepper to taste, drizzle over the olive oil, and top with the parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes or until the shell just starts to go soft.
