Stuffed Zucchini

YUM!!! and the leftovers.. YUM!!! It was delish!!

The Menu:
Stuffed Zucchini

The Original Recipe:
I have heard of this before and attempted it one other time, but never got it quite right.. I was scared to try and scoop the seeds from the zucchini, so I just chopped it up instead and baked it all together... This time I used my own way and it was sooo good.. and the leftovers were even better! The flavors really came out!

Stuffed Zucchini

2 medium sized zucchini
1 lb. ground beef
2 tsp. Italian Seasonings
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1 egg
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1 can Italian stewed tomatoes
Feta Cheese

Cut zucchini lengthwise. Scoop out seeds with a spoon (It was rather easy. I thought it was going to be difficult, but it really wasn't) sprinkle with salt (i used smoked sea salt..mmmm). Combine hamburger meat, Italian seasoning, onion, garlic, tomatoes, egg and breadcrumbs until mixed together. Stuff Zucchini halves. Place on pan and cover with stewed tomatoes (mine fit in a 9x13 pan). Bake 350 for about an hour. Test to see if zucchini is soft. Add cheese generously to top. uncovered bake for 20 minutes more... delish!!
*Would taste great using loose ground pork!
