"Only reason not 5 stars is by I had to change recipe. Boiling zucchini made it way to soggy. Also to make it healthier I just used egg whites and I substituted bread crumbs for whole wheat bread crumbs. My family loved it, it will become a regular meal for us."- NutriNik

Top-ranked recipe named "Baked Stuffed Zucchini"
1. Scrub zucchini and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out and reserve pulp, leaving shells 1/4-inch thick. 2. Drop shells into boiling water and boil for 5 minutes. 3. Chop pulp and saute in margarine. Add scallion (or green onions) and mushrooms; saute 3 minutes longer. Add nuts and remove from heat. 4. Beat eggs with parsley, basil, salt and pepper to taste. 5. Add egg mixture and fresh bread crumbs to pulp mixture. Spoon into zucchini shells which have been drained. Top with grated cheese. Use your choice of cheese; Parmesan is only one suggestion. 6. Place into a baking dish which has been greased with margarine. Add 1/2 inch of water and bake, uncovered, in preheated 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve.

debbiecon 6 months agoThis was ok but the bottoms were soggy. The flavor was good though.
bettyluna83 7 months agoGreat taste. I added red yellow and orange bell peppers instead of mushrooms. Would like to try with a layer of cheese on the zucchini before the filling or to add some meat or even rice with the filler. Ill try it again, thanks.

leahstanton 1 year agoThis is great. It gets my kids to eat veggies as anything stuffed they will devour.
Heatherferg 2 years agoAfter reading the reviews I made a few changes. Added salt and pepper to the zucchini before filling, did not use the pulp in the stuffing(thought it would make the mixture too watery), and did not use any water in the oven. Delicious.
NaniCaroline 3 years agoI omitted the walnut and added finely diced orange bell pepper. The zucchini shells were bland but a little salt and pepper directly on them before adding the filling will take care of that. Over all very delicious; it's added to our family favorites!
Ionela82 3 years agoThe shell was soggy/soft. I will not put any water next time during the baking part. Not sure if the walnuts is a good combination for the stuffing. Not much flavor at all. I will make it for my vegetarian friends but not for my self anymore.
NJTroy 3 years agoThe stuffing here was terrific, but the zucchini shell was very bland. I might do the stuffing again, but I'd stuff something else with it.

roshanelyse 6 years agoI was surprised as to how delicious this is! My kids hate mushrooms but they snarfed this down (of course I didn't tell them). Instead of onion, I added a clove of minced garlic. Rich in flavor and good re-heated, too.
promfh 8 years agoI added a few croutons to the stuffing. It was delicious and my spouse was impressed.
