zucchini, ends trimmed
1 (16 ounce) jar
1/2 (6 ounce) can
sliced black olives, drained
grated Parmesan cheese
shredded mozzarella cheese
The problem is the term "lightly stuff", use a medium (14") zucchini and "stuff" the filling into those 2 halves. Now you have a great meal for 2.
Serve the rest of the jar of sauce heated in a bowl for people that like more sauce.
The recipe seems very off. I used 1 lb. of ground turkey and 3 zucchini, but kept everything else the same and ended up with a lot of extra filling. Other than that, it was really good, but 5 minutes is far too long for the broiling. I also agree that it isn't very filling at all.
My entire family LOVE this! My only complaint is that it wasn't very filling
I made this for dinner and it was a big hit. The recipe provides the base but you can get creative as I did. I doubled the recipe and instead of beef I used turkey and mild Italian sausage.
As others have mentioned you do end up with some extra meat filling. I took the extra filling and made a sauce by adding a can of diced tomatoes (not drained) placed in a skillet and let it simmer.
With my oven I did need to bake for an extra 15 minutes because the zucchini I used were huge.
Be adventurous because you can't go wrong this! Enjoy!
I substituted Johnsonville pork and chicken italian sausage in place of the ground beef and this was very good. I didn't have any large zucchini I used a couple smaller ones and it worked out good the measurements were a little off. I had a alot left over. I will use less sauce next time but it was a tasty meal.
This is the kind of food I like. And my family loved it too! It was Delicious!
I only had enough mozzarella to cover one zucchini and so I used cheddar for the other - both were excellent! My husband said he wanted me to add it to his "list of favorites" which is the highest compliment I can get! :)
