This is a tasty meat and vegetables with just the right spices to make it a flavorful dish. I got this from the ladies of the Greek Orthodox Church. They always have something special cooking in the kitchen.

All I can say is wow, wow.... oh, and did I say wow!!!....Glitz, as all of your recipes, this is one big time winner you got girl! I made this tonight for dinner for DH and myself, with the zucchini from my overstocked garden. Although I think my zucchini was more than 4 inches long, I had just enough filling for them. I already had the cooked beef in the freezer, so that was a big time saver. I made the recipe as stated, and used feta cheese on four, and Parm cheese on the other four. This was certainly a filling meal, one of the best zucchini recipes I have ever made, and I thank you so much for posting another winner Glitter. I will make this again, we just loved them!. Great way to use up zuchinni from the garden!...Kitten:)
