How to Make Mushroom & Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini

Step-by-Step

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.
