Number of Servings: 2


    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


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!
