Stuffed Zucchini

With all the changes going on in my life I have not had the time that I usually do to tend to my garden. When the DF and I finally got around to weeding I found that our zucchini had grown to monstrous sizes. The neighbour took a few but I still had two huge ones left. So I had to come up with a few recipes to use them up. Here is a very yummy recipe that I made up

One huge zucchini cut lengthwise and de-seeded
1Tbs Oil
1 lb ground turkey
1 onion diced
2 clove garlic
1tsp dried oregano
2 tsp pesto
¾ cup Grated Asiago cheese (or any other strong Italian cheese)
Salt & pepper to taste

In a large pan heat the oil and then fry the onions until translucent. Then add the ground turkey & Garlic. Brown meat. Then add the oregano and Pesto. Fry for 10 min.

Remove pan from heat and allow to cool slightly. Pre-heat oven to 375F. Mix in ½ c of the grated cheese. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Then Stuff the zucchini with the mixture. Top with the remaining cheese. Place on a baking sheet, cover with tinfoil and bake in the oven for 30-45 min. Test doness by poking the flesh of the zucchini with a fork. The flesh should be soft… but not mushy. Pull off the foil and broil till the cheese on the top is bubbly and brown.

Cut crossways and serve desired pieces. Can be a side dish or a main entrée.

Hope you enjoy
