Stuffed Baby Zucchini for Two

Submitted by: ANGELAHELWIG


Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    2 large baby zucchini halved lengthwise
    2 oz reduced fat shredded cheese - I used a 4 cheese mexican blend
    1/4 medium red bell pepper
    1/4 medium red or sweet variety onion
    1 clove garlic
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tbsp Parsley (I used dried but fresh would be even better)
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Hollow out centers of zucchini halves and reserve.
Using small food chopper, finely chop zucchini guts, bell pepper, onion and garlic (add parsley, too, if using fresh).
Add the chili powder, parsley, salt and pepper and any other seasoning you might like to the chopped veggie mix.
Add one half the cheese to the mixture and combine well.
Spoon into zucchini halves and spread rest of cheese on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 30 minutes - cheese should be golden brown.
Makes 2 servings - two halves per person.

    This recipe was a little bland for me and my husband. It was easy to make and looked delicious but I would add more spices next time (red pepper, cajun seasoning, etc.) and try some different cheese (I used cheddar) to give it more taste. Overall it was good and will make it again with modifications - 5/27/09

    This is the BEST!!! My 16 year old son loved these. He wanted more cheese, so I added more on top of his. I did make these and will make again. I think for a winter dish I will put in a baking pan and put some tomato sauce over it and then bake. Again - WONDERFUL & filling - 6/15/08

    This is great as is or is easily tweeked to your liking. I once made it using Italian seasoning instead of the chilie powder and pouring 1/2 can chopped tomatoes on top before baking. It was good too. - 11/12/08

    Made this tonight for me and my fiance - we both really enjoyed it. I added an extra ounce of the cheese for both of us. I don't have a food processor, but I chopped everything up by hand and it was just fine.
    thank you! - 6/17/08

    This recipe still lets the zucchini taste like zucchini but is different than just plain boiled squash. Nice change for an everyday meal or company. - 3/27/09

    YUMMY!!! If you like zucchini then you will LOVE this recipe! It is easy to make but when it's done it looks like it was made by a real chef. This is a pleasing dish for both the eyes and the mouth! - 6/19/08

    This was an OK version. I add ,mushrooms(fresh or canned), black olives and ground turkey ,and then grate a drier saltier cheese on top(parm/pecorino/romano), and sometimes breadcrumbs for a little crunch. Kick it up a notch people! - 9/14/09

    My son(14) loved it. Added some fresh chopped mushrooms to it and some cumin and made it with jack cheese. You could add Italian seasoning and mozzarella or any other combinations that your family likes. This is awesome for using up whatever happens to be in teh refrigerator. - 9/12/09

    This sounds really good. I love zucchini. For a kid friendly version you can mix chopped up ham, crushed pineapple, pizza sauce, and mozzerella cheese. It's like a ham and pineapple pizza, but with a veggie twist. - 11/12/08

    I also like to stuff tomatoes, onions, potatoes, red bell peppers. And I use Parmesan cheese because I find it more tasty. Thank you for sharing this recipe! :-) - 11/12/08

    I love zucchini and make something similar. If I don't have cheese, I just put plain, low fat yoghurt on top. Gives a nice tang. - 11/12/08

    Great recipe, could be used with any kind of summer squash, cheese, or fresh herbs. We have TONS of them still on the vine, delighted to see a new way to prepare the silly things! Even our neighbors don't want any more. ;) - 9/21/09
