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.
