I have made a similar dish for years, browning some hamburger and onion first, then adding frozen corn and fresh zucchini. I season it with salt & pepper as it cooks then top with the cheese. You can also scoop out a large zucchini, leaving the 'shell', chop it into small pieces and add the cooked hamburger, onion, and corn, mix it all together and put it in the zucchini 'boat' and bake for about 30 minutes on 350 in a 9x13 pan. Top with the shredded cheese and bake another 5 minutes. It also helps to slice a bit off the bottom of the zucchini so it sits flat in the pan.
This is very much like one of the recipes my grandmother showed me, but one thing different is that she would add 1/2 cut up red and orange bell peppers for a more colorful dish. And would add the salt and pepper in the begining instead of at the end. The cheese part is the same and would range from Chedder cheese to Colby-Jack cheese. Thanks for bringing back a great recipe to mind as well as the fond memories of grandma and me in the kitchen.
This recipe was amazing! I loved the flavors together--and adding bell peppers to the recipe really gave it some extra color and flavor. I thought the prep time and the cooking time was a little off--but in all, the recipe tasted great!
This was very good! We are on diet so we skipped the cheese.
Absolutely wonderful. My family gave it 5 stars, too. I didn't change a thing except I omitted the cheese. I will be making this often.
Its good, light and nutritious. I gave it 4 because the cheese takes away from the flavor. All in all, delicious
Absolutely delicious! I gave 4 out of 5 stars because the cook time was off. I ended up with too much liquid, but the corn, squash, and zucchini came directly out of the garden that morning, so I think the moisture content was higher than with store bought ingredients. Adding different types of squash (I used 3 types of patty-pan, round zucchini, and crookneck) gives some extra flavor and texture. I topped it with diced tomatoes and some fresh cilantro to add color. My sweetheart loved it, will defiantly make again.
This was yummy and cheesy and besides the chopping not too hard to throw together. We added a pound of hambuger to it to make it a complete meal and it was well recieved by the whole family. Good dish to use up those extra garden veggies.
