Zucchini Stuffing Recipe

I've been serving this dish for years and always receive compliments on it. If you don't have day-old bread in your pantry, simply slice fresh bread and bake it at 300° for 10 minutes. —Mary Ann Dell, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

"Did not like the dry taste of it - 1 cup of flour and 4 cups of bread was too too dry and not a very good taste withi the pumpkin - Wisconsin - would not recommend."

"Loved it. Made half the recipe in an 8x8. Required 5 or 10 more minutes uncovered baking time."

"this dish was delicious! Sort of like a stuffed zucchini boat, except all mixed together in a convenient casserole. I was skeptical about the pumpkin, but really liked the flavor combination in the end. We served it as a main dish was side salads."
