Have changed out the the cheese and even used fresh chopped tomatoes in the stuffing.

How to Make Mushroom & Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut zucchini in half length-wise and scoop out halves - leaving approximately 1/4" thick. Chop pulp and set aside.
  2. Cook onions in olive oils until wilted, add mushrooms and garlic. Cover and cook until the mushrooms give up their juice. Add chopped zucchini, cook over high heat , stirring until the liquid evaporates. Add remaining ingredients except the 1/2 cup reserved Parmesan cheese,. Cook about 10 minutes (adjust heat to medium) stirring constantly for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. When cool enough to put in the shells, stuff shells with equal parts and sprinkle with reserved Parmesan cheese. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees or until piping hot.
  3. Finishing touch-- brown briefly under broiler.

    Serve and enjoy! Great addition to grilled meats or a great addition to any meal.
