This makes a nice side for roast beef or a roasted chicken. It is also nice with provalone cheese instead of parmesan.

Directions

  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise.

  7. Brown the meat, garlic, onion, and mushrooms, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper; drain fat.

A nice change for stuffed zucchini but we did feel it was missing something like maybe a tomato sauce mixed in with the mixture. Was really a easy recipe to make. I used monterey jack cheese in place of the parmesan cheese. I also added Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb to the mixture for alittle more flavor. Thanks for sharing!
