      My husband is from Uruguay. We actually grow "Zapallitos" from Uruguay every summer using seeds from there. These Original Squash look similar to a winter butternut, but are a summer variety, similar in taste to our Zucchini's. <br/>The recipe is great as it is, although any stuffing recipe works well with squash and I often joke, I never make the same recipe twice, alway's adding or subtracting ingredients depending on what I have on hand at any given time.<br/>I usually, sauté onions, peppers and garlic, then add it to the browned beef and breadcrumb mixture. <br/>In Uruguay, we usually cut the squash in half, then blanch in boiling water for 3-5 minutes then in cold water, to scoop out the seeds easier. We then drain them a bit, and also add some of the small seeds and pulp in with the stuffing mixture.<br/> My husbands personal topping is a white sauce, that has been flavored with grated parmesan cheese and nutmeg. Then baked in the oven for about 30 minutes. I have posted a foto of my recipe using Uruguayan Zappallitos.

      This turned out really nice. We are big zucchini fans in my house, so it was fun to try this new way of cooking zucchini. Thanks. Made for ZWT4 - Jefes de la Cocina.

      Talk about comfort food up on a farm that has a large number of little zucchini's just perfect for this zapallitos dish.This is such a perfect recipe for this, I wish I could give it more then 5 stars! Just so great! I followed this exactly except I had one extra little zucchini (that I chopped finely) and a bit of onion that needed to be used, (chopped onion up) and threw them both into the breadcrumb after sauted' them a bit. Oh yummy! There was nothing left, but I managed to get the photo pretty fast, before getting eaten up! Thanks Lavender Lynn! Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.

      We liked this but we did not love this. We thought it needs more spice....something to make it hotter. Beautiful to look at though and simple to do. Made for ZWT4.
