    Cookin-jo's Note:

    Stuffed zucchini with some "zing", can be served as a side dish or as one element of a meatless meal. This takes a bit of time but is well worth it. From the "Fields of Greens" vegetarian cookbook.

      A friend of mine gave me 1 GIANT zucchini -at least a foot long and a good 5-6 inches across. I just knew it would be great stuffed and I'm glad a chose this recipe. Great flavors and textures with a bit of a zing to keep things interesting. It all disappeared!
