This is from Cooking Light Magazine. Use a melon baller to make quick work of hollowing out the zucchini halves.

Easy to do, even with my scatter-brained planning. LOL!!It's a nice change from ordinary zucchini. I used yellow squash instead of regular zucchini. I even got DD#2 (who hates squash) to eat it! I think next time I will add some garlic for a little extra zip.
