Fast, easy stuffed zucchini. I make this in the summer when the zucchini are fresh and abundant. It makes a great light meal with some fresh bread to mop up the sauce, or as a side dish. This recipe is easily doubled!

Very yummy, loved it! The zucchini I used were not very large which I kind of liked because I could easily cut them in half for a single serving. My daughter went crazy for this and she is not a huge zucchini fan. Made exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for this great recipe.
