Corn and Bell Peppers Stuffed Zucchini

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is a simple side dish that complements pork and grilled meats. It's not one of my personal favorites as is, because we think it's a little bland, but I'm posting it because people have so many different tastes. I like to add additional herbs, jalapenos, and/or salsa to jazz it up a bit. ZWT Mid-West region (corn).

I really liked this one and thought the flavors worked really well together. Based on the chef's comments I decided I wanted to add a bit more but something that complemented the sweet flavors of the fresh cut corn and peppers. Decided to add a little garlic and replaced the spring onions with shallots. It was delicious and became the centerpiece of my meatless meal. (P.S. I cooked my squash in a steamer as I don't have a microwave.) Thanks!
