"Fantastic! I added chopped mushrooms and half an onion to the meat mixture and used Trader Joe's Arribiata sauce instead of the simple marinara. My husband and two year old son couldn't get enough of it! We fought over leftovers the next day (I won, since I'm 9 months pregnant). "- hbjacks03

Preheat oven to 375~F. Trim ends of zucchini. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out centers leaving 1/4" thick shells. Chop pulp (makes about 1 cup); set aside. In a large skillet brown ground beef; drain fat. Stir in reseved zucchini pulp, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup marinara sauce and egg; mix well. Place zucchini shells in a shallow baking pan. Spoon meat mixture into shells. Pour remaining marinara sauce over and around zucchini. Cover and bake until zucchini shells are tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake, uncovered, until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.

brittanyjoefalco 1 year agoAbsolutely wonderful! I cut down on the sauce and added italian seasoned canned tomatoes. I also used extra cheese. They were delicious, this will stay in my favorites! Thanks for posting it.
toeturtle 1 year agoI love this meal! I usually boil the zucchini shells for a few minutes so that they are soft before stuffing them.
Simoni 2 years agoWas wonderful, I added Italian sausage for half of ground beef, makes a great main dish when paired with Italian bread and a salad!
Kdastrup 2 years agoI made this for my family and the stuffing was great. I think it would have been better if I cooked the zucchini longer so that it was softer, but we were in a hurry so I couldn't. I'll have to try this out again in the future to see if I can get it right.

KitschyKitchen 2 years agoServed this for dinner last night with a green salad & garlic bread-Very good. The only thing I changed was to use a 24oz jar of Marinara Sauce instead of 32oz. Will be making this recipe again!
terik1972 2 years agoThis was very good. I used onion/garlic to pork sausage instead of GB. Then I added more fresh parma cheese to stuffing as well as onion powder. Instead of mozzerella cheese, I used white american because it melts better. Family loved it.
SophiesFeeder 2 years agoWe had this for dinner tonight. I had a zucchini that stayed on the vine too long. Too big for anything really but I decided to try it. From now on I'm going to let one or two get too big. It came out perfect. Love this dinner. I used Italian sausage (that's what I had).

kc_love2008 3 years agoThis was delicious! I might try some other cheeses next time.
stacys4iu 4 years agoThis recipe is awesome! My husband was very impressed because this was my first dish with Zucchini. It was very easy to make. We are cheese lovers, so I added a little more cheese than what the recipe called for. It turned out great!
