So good!! The only change I made was to use dried herbs since that is all I had. These were a nice healthy lunch with tons of flavor. Made for 123Hits.

So happy we tried this as it was very tasty and nice to have stuffed zucchini without meat or/and tomatoes. Not only was this tasty but it came together very wall with just the right amount of filling. Made one very minor change in that I used grilled marinated artichoke hearts as I had them on hand. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for the post.
