Stuffed Zucchini

This recipe is a family favorite. I stuffed the zucchini yesterday and froze one and tonight we had the other one for dinner. Easy clean-up is key for a Monday night.

It is a pretty easy recipe. I am not sure where it originated so I will make the assumption that my Mom must have made them.

First, cut the zucchini in half (I used 2 zucchini), remove the seeds, and core out the inside, you'll use that for the filling. 

Make some rice. I used Arborio. 

Blanch or steam the zucchini halves. 

Saute chopped onion in olive oil and butter until golden. 

Add ground beef. 

Brown the meat and add the zucchini that you scraped out. 

Saute until tender. 

Season with salt, pepper, parsley, and oregano. 

Mix the filling with the rice and some Parmesan Cheese and adjust the seasoning. 

Fill the zucchini boats with the filling. 

Top with sauce and Parmesan Cheese and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
