I'm really rating the idea of this dish, because I changed it. I didn't cook them in the boiling water. I hollowed them and scooped the pulp out raw. Chopped the pulp and sauted it in a little olive oil. Then added the bread crumbs and browned them in the pan with the zucchini pulp. I added a little oregano and basil, and cooled the filling. I then added about 2oz of cheddar cheese and 2oz mozzarella. Stuffed the raw "boats", sprinkled with parm. cheese, put in a baking pan with a little water on the bottom and baked in a hot oven. They held their shape nicely, but were tender. I omitted the onion, salt, eggs, and butter. My three childred loved them, and were actually fighting over the last one! Maybe I should just submit this as a new recipe. Now I'll have another recipe to use for that windfall of summer zucchini.

I made this recipe with a 5 POUND zucc i grew in my garden. My sister came over and everyone enjoyed it very much. We followed the recipe, adding a bit here and there to account for the size of the veggie. It was easy to alter for amount, we didnt even really measure...other than to be sure we used at least what was in the recipe and roughly double for the size. We did add sausage for my hubby and everyone was pleased. We also sprinkled cheddar and bread crumbs on the top to give it a yummy crunchy coating, but the recipe was great as it stood! Thanks!

I made this recipe for my family last night and it was a huge hit. I had read the posted reviews about lack of flavor, so I used crushed seasoned croutons instead of bread crumbs, and added a clove of minced garlic to the filling. It was very flavorful and everyone loved them!
