New Zucchini Recipe of 2009 Number Three

So far this summer I have made two new zucchini recipes. Well, new to me! First there was zucchini bread and second was chicken cacciatore, which contained zucchini.

Yesterday I tried a new zucchini recipe that I found on Darcy Lee's blog HERE, called Zucchini Boats. It turned out wonderfully and is now one of my favorite zucchini recipes! Thanks so much Darcy Lee.

Here are some pictures of the process.

My thoughts about this recipe:

1. Brown rice is REALLY good when cooked in chicken broth. Like a lot of people, we don't really like brown rice, so this gives me another way to make it more palatable.

2. I have a problem with my oven cooking too hot and too quickly. As a result the cheese browned before the zucchini shells were quite done. Next time I will wait to sprinkle on the cheese until near the end of the cooking time, just so it has time to melt.

3. This is a very healthy dish.

I made a similar recipe a few years ago with sausage in it. They were so good! Yours look really delicious too.:-)

Debbie,

That looks so tasty. I make stuffed zucchini but with more of a middle eastern style. I'll have to try this recipe.

Thank you for sharing!
