Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini

READY IN: 1hr 55mins
Recipe by Chani Goldstein

This makes a really festive sidedish or appetizer. I make this all the time for my mother who is on weight watchers because there is only a point per 2 pieces.

Loved the dish! It came out great the first time I tried it, and it needs very little improvement to become a centerpiece vegetarian dish.
