A great low calorie/low fat recipe. I created this recipe by significantly modifying Tish's stuffed zucchini recipe (#17260) to create a much healthier version. This is a fun recipe because you can add many different ingredients and still get great results! I've added corn, prosciutto....the possibilities are endless!

These were great!! Everything seems to work well together to give these a great taste without adding a lot of fat and calories. I used a little more cheese, but other than that stuck to the recipe.
