Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each zucchini in half.
  2. Hollow each zucchini using a melon baller or a knife.
  3. Saute onion, garlic, and zucchini pulp in oil until tender 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add sauce, water, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
  5. Combine rice and spinach and stuff mixture into zucchini (do not overstuff because rice will expand as it cooks).
  6. Lay zucchini in pan and pour sauce over top.
  7. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

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.
