Stuffed Zucchini

Stuffed Zucchini

My Dad loves to garden and gave me a monster 20-inch zucchini.  I didn’t really know what to do with it, so I decided to stuff it with a filling of ground beef, tomatoes, red pepper and rice with lots of cheese.   I like to have frozen rice in my freezer that I get at Trader Joe’s so I can make quick pilafs, fried rice and stuffings, or freeze leftover rice I make.  It was so big it fed 8 people!  I made the filling and then baked it (which took forever – I think an hour and a half total!).  Next time I would partially roast the zucchini before I stuffed it.  Since the zucchini was so big it really held it’s texture and was more like a pumpkin texture which was delicious.  This recipe would also work for “normal” zucchini but just use more of them.  Click here for the recipe….
