Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini

Total Time

This is a yummy light, "Veggieful" meal that is a great alternative to the usual beef-stuffed zucchini. I like to serve this with rice, as I like the blend of flavors and textures. But really, all that you need is a nice green salad, some crusty french bread, and a nice bottle of wine. Mmmmmm!

This a great basis for a whole range of different stuffings. I had large Italian courgettes and cooked the flesh with the ingredients in this recipe, rather than the spinach, pasta sauce and mushrooms. It was lovely. Good for a 'nothing in the fridge' day!

My husband absolutely loved it. Left out the mushrooms and added "french fried onions" for a bit of a crunch.
