      When I made this, I was not sure I would like it. For me there was too much breadcrumbs. But finally the taste was great. I enjoyed it. But DH didn't like it. I just omitted the walnuts. Thanks Lainey. Made for 123 hit wonders

      I went to add this recipe and was glad to see it was posted. We had this tonight for dinner. I scaled down to 2 servings and next time will add some garlic to cook with onions and zucchini flesh. I also would like to try this with rotel tomatoes with green chilis. Great recipe! Thanks for posting.

      I can't believe this but my 13 year old son said this was "scrumptious" I will definitely make this again. I used a melon baller to scoop out the meat. Next time I will chop it up instead of having little balls in the stuffing. Thanks for a great recipe
