I am the creator of this recipe and I will be adding a picture soon. It's the wrong size! :( I wanted to add a few notes, I only use about half of the rice and save the rest to use with another meal that week. I also use almost an entire can of low sodium tomato sauce. I also use Sargento provolone/mozzarella slices (I break the piece in half and then lay the cheese in the zucchini boats, they fit perfectly). I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as our family.
I enjoyed the concept and presentation though the overall flavor needed something more. Good way to use bountiful zucchini.
This recipe was awesome. I had to use ground beef instead of chicken because that was all I had, and I cut the jalepeno to only one because I'm a self proclaimed spice wimp, and my children only like mild spice. It was sooooooo delicious, enjoyed by adults and children, and healthy - veggies included! I love a balanced meal all in one!
Substituted chicken for beef and pork for the red-meat-eaters in my house; It was a hit! The zucchini in my garden grew to the length of my pan, so I only used two zucchinis, but they looked nice and cut up well in the pan. I brought it to a pot luck dinner, and brought home an almost empty pan!
Liked it but will try it with turkey and beef also. Did not think it was to bland at all.
It seemed very bland. Could have used some more flavor. Way too much rice for filling
Perfect way to use up those over sized zucchini! I followed the recipe and found it to be a little bland so I doubled up on the worcestershire sauce, oregano, basil & garlic. Turned out great!
I didn't read the review about only using half the rice, so I ended up having a lot of the mixture leftover even after packing those zucchini full. I didn't have tomato sauce so I pureed a tomato other than that I followed the recipe to a T. Taste was great and everyone loved it!
