This recipe was sooooo good I have a lot of zucchini coming out of my garden now, and so I was looking for ways to use it when I found this recipe, and boy is it a new favorite in our house!!! My son, who loves zucchini, devoured it, and even my daughter, who usually does not like it, ate this also; ditto for my hubby. The stuffing was perfect, and the tomato salsa so fresh and yummy and a great way to also use the summer herbs from my garden. The salsa was even good on top of our grilled chicken!! The only change I made was to add parmesan cheese to the stuffing, as well as a little extra on top. What a wonderful, delicious summer recipe!
Made this recipe last night for my boyfriend and myself. It was yummy and filling. We followed a suggestions and added some parmesan into the mixture and on top too. Also sprinkled a bit of mozzarella on top too- not much! The tomato salsa was great and I suggest making enough to really cover the recipe in it. Next time I try it though, I'm going to use a marinara sauce to pour over top after they come out of the over because I think that would really compliment it. The breadcrumbs just made the mixture a little dry so any added moisture would be great. Maybe even more chicken broth to add. I'll definitely make this again. It's a great meal. We ate it with a spinach salad and felt like a million bucks after!
