"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

brittanyjoefalco 2 years 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 2 years 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.
