"Squash stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach. I prefer a bit more garlic, and this can also be done on a grill by simply wrapping in foil."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Trim ends of zucchini halves, and scoop out seeds and pulp, leaving about 1/2 inch pulp on skins. In a large saucepan, steam zucchini halves in a vegetable steamer over boiling water for about 5 minutes, until tender but firm. Drain, and immediately plunge into a large bowl filled with enough ice water to cover. Allow to cool completely; drain.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Slowly cook and stir onion and garlic until onion is soft. Stir in spinach, and cook about 1 minute, until wilted.
  4. Transfer spinach mixture to a medium bowl, and mix in ricotta cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, basil, oregano and pepper. Stuff zucchini halves with even amounts of the mixture, and arrange in a large baking dish. Drizzle with remaining butter.
  5. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until the stuffing is hot and bubbly. Heat tomato sauce in a small saucepan, and spoon over the zucchini half way through baking.

This is a great recipe to play with. I made several adaptations and my boyfriend was really impressed! He said we should make it at our next dinner party. I used cottage cheese rather than ricot...

Well, the zucchini is starting to be harvested from the garden and am I ever glad I found this recipe! Hubby loved it and so did I. I only modified by adding a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese ...

This recipe turned out pretty good. I expected it to be a bit runny as I used lowfat ricotta. But that didn't happen and I was pleased. The key is to steam the zucchini just enough to retain som...

Very yummy! I used lowfat whipped cottage cheese in lieu of the ricotta and added more parm than called for. I topped the casserole with shredded mozarella. Hubby and kids loved this dish!

I used large yellow squash instead of zukes and didn't follow the recipe very closely but I did use all the other ingredients so I feel justified in leaving a review. It was not a difficult rec...

Excellent. I served this to a friend who doesn't like zucchini, and they loved it, and my vegetable hating teenager even admitted it was "OK." I used part skim ricotta, not whole milk, and of ...
