    Sharon123's Note:

    Rich and savory with portabella mushrooms and spinach, combined with rice, sherry,olive oil,and dill, this makes a dramatic filling for zucchini boats. Another winner from the Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites Cookbook.

      In a skillet, saute the onions, garlic, and salt in the oil on low heat, stirring often, until the onions soften.

      Very good! I used Spicy Hot V8, and I substituted bread crumbs with parmesan for the rice (didn't want to wait for it to cook). I grated asiago over it instead of the fontina- delicious! Will definitely make again, thanks!

      Delicious, I am going to make this again soon. The zucchini I used was a little small. So I put some of the stuffing around them. I also used the zucchini that I scooped out,in the stuffing, this worked fine, I used V8 juice. The cooking time was just right. This is a GOOD recipe to use when you have lots of Zucchini in the garden. Thank you Sharon for posting the recipe.
