Stuffed Zucchini

The zucchini came for Pete's garden. I cut them in half, cored them, saving the insides. I steamed the shells just a bit. I chopped onions and browned them and then added ground beef to the the pan. Next I added the zucchini that I had scooped out, after chopping it up. Seasonings were added, salt, pepper, thyme and basil. I removed the pan from the heat and stirred in cooked brown rice and Parmesan cheese. I filled the cavities of the steamed zucchini boats and placed them in a baking dish. Topped the zucchini with marinara sauce and grated cheese and into a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Second zucchini dish of the week... more to come...
