    GotBoxer?'s Note:

    Dont let the length of the recipe scare you, it is extremely simple to throw together and this is a dish my children love. It is also a great way to use up ALL of those zucchini that one plant seemed to have made this summer :)

      Absolutely wonderful!!!! This dish had so much flavour and it wasnt a lot of work either. DH loved it and complimented 3 times during the meal. I did have some minor changes .... one due to a mombo zucchini that was a foot long and as round as a softball for the record this recipe stuffed it perfectly! I used mild italian sausage in place of pork because it was the same price and I had no italian seasoning. Diced tomatoes were on sale so again since I had no italian stewed I added 1/3 tsp of dried thyme, 1/2 tsp of dried basil and 1/4 cup of chopped freash parsley. No croutons so I chopped multi-grain bread in small cubes and toasted at 200 for 30 min. Due to the size of the zucchini I tried 30 min at 300 but not much luck so I increased time to 350 and did another 30 min then uncovered for 20 min. I knew that would be an issue though. Will make this many times, even thinking of doing some to freeze. Thanks

      We make this and varieties of this every summer. It's also good with taco flavoring.

      I didn't have any ground pork so subbed more ground beef. Also didn't have stewed tomatoes so used diced with chili's then added some fresh herbs and Worcestershire sauce. Very good!
