Light version of stuffed zucchini

Top Review by yogiclarebear

This was good. I used a reduced calorie pasta sauce rather than the tomato sauce/paste. The ingredients don't show breadcrumbs, although the directions call to add it? I skipped it and the stuffing was a bit watery for it, but no big deal. I used round "globe" zucchini, and fat free cheese.
