LinKev's overstuffed zucchini
I decided to stuff the zucchini with stove top stuffing
and I used a few of ingredients that I had in the refrigerator.
They turned out to be good. I served them as a side dish but you can even serve them as appetizers by cutting them in small bite sizes.
3 large zucchini ends trimmed and cut in half lengthwise
3 tablespoons of butter cut in thin slices
1 chicken stove top stuffing
1 cup of water
1 chopped onion
2 garlic cloves minced
1 large egg slightly beaten
1 cup of mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.
Scoop the pulp of the zucchini with a spoon leaving 1/4 inch thick shell chop up the pulp.
In a large skillet heat oil and saute' the zucchini pulp, onion and garlic for about 5 minutes drain if needed.
In a large enough bowl add the zucchini mixture, mozzarella cheese, stuffing, egg, water and salt and pepper mix well.
In a 13x9 baking dish layer the butter slices all around on bottom of pan.
Stuff the zucchini shells with the stuffing mix till it's all finished they should be over stuffed
then place them in baking dish.
Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, uncover and broil for another 3 to 5 minutes or until stuffing on top turns brown and crunchy.
