Zucchini stuffed with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil make a fresh summer side dish. For the nicest presentation, use long, relatively skinny zucchini.

Very good

I don't follow directions very well - I put the filling in raw zucchini and wrapped them in foil and put on the grill over medium heat for 30 minutes. The zucchini were crisp (like I like them) and the filling was nicely heated. They really tasted great. I also used feta instead of mozzarella.

Healthy and Easy Meal

I also used fresh green beans & summer squash out of my garden as well. Cut them into small chunks and steamed them for about a minute, then added them to the other ingredients. Didn't have the right kind of cheese so I used the bagged kind you find in the grocery store (4 blended) and added a handful of mini pepperoni. This dish was amazing. My husband loved it too.

Healthy, Easy, Tasty, and colorful dish

How did you eat these? Pick

How did you eat these? Pick them up to eat, slice with a knife and eat with a fork?


I thought this was great! I didn't have mozzarella to dice, but had some shredded mozzarella. Also used more fresh basil than recipe called for and added a couple pinches of cayenne pepper. Will be making these again!

The taste was amazing because my Son, the gourmet chef, reminded me of the days of working in the kitchen with a salamandor. At home, the next best thing is the broiler. So instead of serving this with cold innards, I stuck them under the broiler for 4 minutes to firm up the
canoe and melt the cheese...YUM and 5 Stars!

Healthy, Tasty Zucchini
Nice concept but a little bland

This recipe is a great concept, but I think it needs more zing. The cheese was bland, the veggies are bland. . .I think you get the picture. That said, I think a Greek version of this would be FABULOUS using feta cheese, tomatoes, a bit of red onion, and kalamata olives with a Greek vinaigrette. I am going to try that next week!

Low calorie, vegetarian, very pretty
