Cheese Stuffed Zucchini

cheese stuffed zucchiniIn my neck of the woods, stuffed vegetables usually involve hamburger, tomato sauce and rice, or crab meat. None of these fillings really thrills me, and I often avoid them. At the same time, I love veggies, especially when they are fresh from my garden.  I love to make them the focal point of a meal. A few years ago, I came up with this recipe in response to a glut of zucchini and summer squash from my garden.

This filling is wonderful and would be tasty stuffed inside any number of foods, including bread, tomatoes, other squash, mushrooms, and almost anything else. It's that good.
