Stuffed Zucchini Just Like Martha

"This is from Everyday Food. I made it and we just loved it. It's simple, made with ingredients I usually have on hand and delicious. Great way to use up the bounty of zucchini everyone seems to have in the summer."

    I fixed this the other night and my husband Rick & I really liked it. The only thing I added was chopped summer squash because there didn"t seem to be enough from the zucchini itself. I think that added to the flavor. I can see adding other veggies to this to change it and use up what you have on hand. We did fix it on the gas grill along with my version of beer can chicken. Thanks for a great idea.

    Loved this! It is as simple as it can get, for a very elegant presentation. I left out the tomatoes, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will definitely make this again. Yet another score for Martha (and you, riffraff!). Thanks!

    I actually followed the microwave version since it was so hot today I didn't want to turn on the oven. I think the baked version would probably earn five stars mainly because it would help the stuffing stay together. Taste is delicious, though, and hubby muched it all up too.

    I made this last night as a side dish for dinner and it was delicious! I didn't have feta on hand so I used gorgonzola. It was awesome! Both me and my boyfriend enjoyed it.

    I really enjoyed this & so did my friend. I added the corn like suggested. I would recommend more cherry tomatoes I added more but would have liked even more, I loved the flavor they added. Thanks for posting!
