As another reviewer noted, this recipe is adaptable. It seems very forgiving if amounts are not exact. I only made up one zucchini log, eyeballing the "guts" ingredients, and that worked out well. For all those cooks out there wondering what to do with yet another zucchini from the garden, give this recipe a try.
I really liked this recipe. A nice quick side when you don't know what to fix with the ever popular zucchini. And I'd bet almost everyone has some dry soup mix in the pantry!

Very good, we loved these! I suspect that our South African 'baby marrows' are a little smaller generally than your zucchini, and I was serving only DH and I, so for my four zucchini I halved the filling mixture, and indeed, it was just right. I used half a packet of brown onion soup mix. Otherwise, they cooked perfectly and made an interesting and very tasty side dish, DH was impressed! Another time, I might lightly sautee the flesh removed from the zucchini and add it to the stuffing, so as not to waste it! Made for PAC Spring 2009, thank you JennyLynn for a lovely recipe!
I love zucchini and enjoy trying new ways to fix it. I only made a half batch which was easy enough to do and used Knorr brand vegetable soup mix. I didn't have and taco blend cheese, but used Tillamook extra sharp because it's what I had on hand, so cut back using about a third of a cup. They were a little slippery on the cookie sheet after a shot of pam, but if you're slow putting them in the oven you'll be fine! Thank you for sharing this tasty new way to eat zucchini! :)
