Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini Recipe
This recipe calls for zucchini boats to be stuffed with lamb, feta, pine nuts, tomatoes, and more.
Stuff that huge zucchini you found in your garden this morning with shrimp, mushrooms, and Parmesan cheese for a summery supper.
Stuffing zucchini with a Southwest-inspired mix of turkey, salsa, and Cheddar cheese is a tasty way to use up the bounty from your garden.
I’ve made this twice and I think next time I’ll skip stuffing the zucchini and slice 2-4 of them, cook all of the ingredients and pour into a casserole dish adding the bread crumbs and cheese to the whole thing. This can be made with a Mexican, Greek or Italian bent by changing spices and cheeses. Also mine was watery so maybe some tomato paste rather than the sauce to thicken it a little.
This delicious stuffed zucchini recipe can be served as either a side dish or a main dish.
I made this for my parents as a part of a five-course meal. Paired very well with a Sangiovese. They absolutely loved it! We used ground turkey instead of lamb which turned out great. I 100% recommended this recipe, especially if you are doing a Mediterranean meal!
I had two giant zucchini, and a pound of ground lamb, I didn’t weigh and measure as I went along, I threw all the pine-nuts I had on the fridge into it, and that seemed ok. I used the last of a carton of panko breadcrumbs to use them up. I’m moving next week, hence the urge to use up what I have. I didn’t have a lot of feta, so I diced some herby Halloumi to add to it. I love it. My husband ate it, but will likely have meatloaf from now on while I eat the leftovers.
I have made stuffed zucchini many times - this was the best!
