Stuffed Zucchini with Tomatoes and Mozzarella

While reading the blog 33 Shades of Green, which I highly recommend, I came across a recipe for Stuffed Zucchini.

It looked delicious so I just had to make it. I made some adjustments to Alissa's recipe.

Here are the ingredients I used:
* 6 medium size zucchini
* 2 tomatoes
* 1/2 a red pepper
* dash or two (or three) of Italian seasoning
* some breadcrumbs
* some extra virgin olive oil
* mozzarellaCut each zucchini in half and scoop out the seeds and reserve.Dice the tomatos, pepper and reserved zucchini insides. Mix all ingredients.Place zucchinis on an oiled baking sheet. Stuff. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.Remove from oven. Turn the oven to broil. Sprinkle each zucchini half with some more mozzarella and broil for a few minutes. Keep an eye on them.

Here is the deliciousness you will get.In the future, I would add some salt and crushed garlic.

So easy. So healthy. So delicious. I cannot wait to make them again!

Thank you Alissa from 33 Shades of Green.

I'd like to try this recipe. How much mozzarella cheese and breadcrumbs do you use? I've been making different dishes and freezing half of what we eat for another meal. I made homemade meatballs this past weekend. I used 1 pound of ground round, 1/2 pound of andouille sausage, herb de Provence, Italian breadcrumbs, worchester sauce, milk and salt and pepper. I made them larger than the recipe called for and they turned out delish!!

Hi Carmie -

Your stuffed zucchini looks delicious - I love the additions you made to the recipe. I agree - garlic would be delicious (when isn't garlic a good idea?!)

Have a great week!

I so love zucchini but I'd grill them rather than bake. I avoid using the oven in the summertime ~

Yummy! There are so many zuchinnis growing right now I can't keep up! I like to cut mine lengthwise in fourths and sprinkle with oil and salt and pepper and grill them. Delish!

This looks like a very delicious "all in one" mini meal - I love those, vs cooking 3 or 4 different items on the stove top! Visiting thru Winthorp Chronicles party.
