Stuffed Zucchini

 Stuffed Zucchini

Hello Friends, today I am going to share a fantastic recipe using zucchini.


My blog buddy Anne of My Giant Strawberry hosted a seed exchange last November. I wrote a post about it here.

One of the seeds that I received was round zucchini. It has done well in the garden and today I will share a wonderful recipe using round zucchini.


 Stuffed Zucchini


Small to Medium Zucchini

1 Small Onion

2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

1/2 Cup Cherry Tomatoes Chopped

3 Garlic Cloves, Minced

1/2 Cup Cubed Mozzarella Cheese

1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley


 Cut of the top of the zucchini and scoop out the center leaving at least a good 1/2 inch border all around. Chop the zucchini that you just removed finely.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a frying pan, cook the chopped onions, the garlic, and half the zucchini in the olive oil until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add, cheese, tomatoes and the chopped parsley.

Stuff the zucchini and place in a baking dish.

Cook for 45 minutes or until fork tender and the filling is golden brown.


Note.. I used Pepper Jack Cheese as a substitute for mozzarella. YUM!

I served the stuffed zucchini with garlic toast. It was a perfect match.




  1. Your stuffed zucchini sounds delicious. I usually make a zucchini casserole., using pretty well the same ingredients but I put more tomatoes in. Now you got me hungry, lol.

  2. This is a good one, and so unusual. Perfect for fall!

  3. Never seen round zucchinis. Of course we know them as courgettes but not seen round ones of those either lol

  4. Looks pretty yummy. Happy Thursday Carla. xoxo Kris

  5. Never heard of a round zuchini, but the recipe sounds wonderful. It's been years since I've planted any veggies. But, I'm going to see if any of our specialty stores have it

  6. Sounds yummy!

    And it says.... "Late Summer" :-))))


  7. They look delicious. Thanks for the recipe. I had no idea that zucchini's came that way.

  8. Carla, the stuffed zucchini looks delicious. I can imagine how good it tasted warm from the oven with the cheese melted. Pepper jack cheese is one of my favorites. And onions and garlic always make everything taste better. Thanks for sharing. It sounds like a healthy meal. Enjoy the rest of the Summer days, Carla.


  9. I've never heard of doing it this way but what a great idea! I would love this!

  10. Your recipe sounds FANTASTIC! TFS I have been making zucchini bread and will be making cookies. We also make zucchini boats. It is a Lebense recipe. It is called Kousa. You can use yellow squash too. Janice

  11. Oh boy that looks so good...we went to a wedding a few years ago and there was a dish like this. It was so pretty and tasted so good!

  12. What a fun vegetable and perfect recipe to enjoy it with!

  13. This is right up my alley! Yummy! I've never had a round zucchini. So cool!
