Olive-Cheese Zucchini Boats Recipe

I WAS ANXIOUS the first time I tried this recipe, wondering if my family would like it. It was a big hit, though, and I was happy to find another idea for serving this prolific garden vegetable. I serve it most often with chicken. It adds so much color to the plate. -Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas
