    I have an abundance of zucchini from my garden. This recipe is a great way to use it. The Italian herbs make it incredible.

      Delicious. I had lots of fresh zucchini from my mom's garden and this was a great way to use it. I really liked the meat filling so full of vegetables and seasonings. Topped off with cheese. Yummy good!!

      We had an abundance of Zucchini (isn't that always the case?) and I just loved this idea. But, my husband wasn't feeling like having an Italian flavored meal. So, we put our heads together and decided to take this idea and turn it Mexican. The only things we changed were the Italian spices and the cheese. We used cilantro instead of parsley, hot Mexican chili powder instead of Italian seasoning, curry instead of basil and added some cayenne and cumin. We switched the mozzarella cheese out for shredded Mexican cheese. It turned out really well. The only change we thought we'd make next time was sprinkle some salt over the Zucchini's before “stuffing� them. We used 4 good sized zucchini's and still had some meat mixture left over. So we added the zucchini “pulp� that we had scraped out, mixed it well (with meat), put it in a pan, poured some spicy Rotel tomatoes over it and baked it along with the others. It came out as a nice hearty, spicy dip for chips. This is a very versatile recipe, can't wait to try the original version – thanks! PS – I always substitute oatmeal for breadcrumbs and did this time as well. It is a healthful swap for those willing to try. :)

      I have made stuffed zucchini before but not with a meaty filling. My husband and I both liked your version. The filling was spicy and well seasoned. This is a meal that we think is worth repeating.
