      Paired this with some garlic bread for a great one dish meal that was a snap to make, I had two nice round stuffing zucchinis from my friends yard so I cut the recipe in half to accommodate having just the two zucchinis. The cook time was spot on as my two round guys turned out nice and tender (firm but not crispy) without turning to mush. They were a little wet but think that was the squash and not the recipe because when I was scooping them out noticed they were wetter than regular zucchini. This is something we will definitely be enjoying again, thanks for the post.
