  2. Chop the zucchini flesh. Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions and chopped zucchini; cook and stir 3 minutes or until onions are crisp-tender. Add tomatoes and bacon; cook 2 minutes. Stir in cheese. Spoon into zucchini shells.
  3. Melt remaining butter in same skillet. Add panko crumbs; cook and stir 3 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle over filled shells.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 15 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Serve this as a vegetable-based side dish with a serving of lean meat or poultry. Or serve alone as an appetizer with a marinara dipping sauce.
