    chef FIFI's Note:

    This recipe is a very flavorful recipe that is healthy and easy. When making traditional stuffed zucchini, the inside of the zucchini is set aside for later use and this is how its used. I sometimes just buy zucchini just to make this dish. You need the long green zucchini for this recipe. This recipe is usually a side dish at our table.* You may want to cut down on the amount of Maggi, or add it in increments until the desired amount of saltiness is achieved*

      Loved the texture, flavor and simplicity of this one. I could not find Maggi brand and had to use Knorr boullion. Though I enjoyed the intensity of flavor from the cube, the saltiness was a bit too overpowering. Wondering if finding the correct brand would have made a difference. In the meantime, thinking a mix of mix of low sodium and regular boullion might work. Will try that and re-review as there is certainly no shortage of zucchini right now. Thanks Chef Fifi.
