A tasty recipe and easy to prepare with simple ingredients. Zucchini stuffed with meat like in adults and children, with their shape inviting a boat. This recipe is delicious paired with a red wine that goes well with meat.



  • Zucchini :4 medium;
  • Ground beef: 1 pound;
  • Onion: 1/2 cup chopped;
  • Marinara or spaghetti sauce: 3/4 cup;
  • Egg: 1, beaten;
  • Seasoned bread crumbs: 1/4 cup;
  • Cheese: 1 cup (4 ounces);
  • Salt: 1/4 teaspoon;
  • Pepper: 1/4 teaspoon.
  • Extra virgin olive oil: 1 teaspoon.
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Preparation: 25/30 min.



Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; cut a thin slice from the bottom of each with a sharp knife to allow zucchini to sit flat. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in. shells.

Place shells in an ungreased 3-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

Remove from the heat; stir in the marinara sauce, egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon about 1/4 cup into each shell. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4 minutes.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Microwave 3-4 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted into filling reads 160° and zucchini are tender. Serve with additional marinara sauce and extra virgin olive oil.
