My boyfriend loved this and even said his mom would too!! That's all I need to know. This is a total winner. Thank you!! PS: I added a couple cloves of garlic but I always do. I'm sure this would be great without it too!!

i absolutely love zucchini and was looking for a delishous recipe that would not take away from the natural goodness... this worked wonderfully. i added some celery and green peppers to the saute and think i will put some garlic in next time...but i didnt put any cheese in and it was still wonderful!!

YUM! This is a great recipe for Stuffed Zucchini. I did add some minced garlic and onion to the mushroom mixture. We love the flavor of onion and garlic in dishes so I thought I would add it to the zucchini. It was awesome! Its a keeper in my book! THanks for sharing!
