    Easy to make, savory and a nice presentation. You could use dill rather than basil in the stuffing if you prefer.

    1. 1
      Remove the ends of 2 of the zucchini, cut in half lengthwise; use a melon baller to scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1/4" thick shell; set the flesh aside.
    2. 2
      Place the shells in a steamer, cut sides up, and steam until just tender, 3-5 minutes; invert on paper towels and drain.
    3. 3
      Cut the remaining 2 squash into 1/4" slices; heat oil in a non-stick skillet; saute the onions over medium heat, until softened; add the reserved flesh, chopped,and the zucchini slices; continue to cook over medium-high heat, until golden.
    4. 4
      Process the cooked mixture and the feta in a food processor until the zucchini is roughly chopped; stuff the shells with this filling and place them in an oiled baking dish.
    5. 5
      Broil 4" from the heat source until filling is bubbly and deep golden in color, about 3 minutes.

      What a wonderful way to prepare squash. The fresh basil is a must in this recipe. This is one easy, flavorful recipe, and I didn't need to change one thing. Thanks sugarpea for sharing your recipe.

      I made this for the first time today. I actually served it to guests, normally a no no with new recipes, but it was a huge hit. My friend thought we should take turns making it for each other each week. Delicious. Thanks for sharing it with us.

      This was really good and really easy!!! I used a spiced feta and mint instead of basil.
