Tomato Stuffed Zucchini

"This is one of our favorite vegetable dishes and a good way to use summer squash," says Marilyn Newcomer of Sun City, California. "It has such a nice Italian flavor that sometimes I double or triple the dish and serve it to company. It can be fixed ahead and warmed up at dinnertime."

    This is a wonderful recipe! I have even used canned tomatos, drained and it comes out just as well. The only other thing i do differently is that i don't bother cooking the zuchinni before i fill them.

    I made the recipe exactly as specified and it was delicious. The topping complimented the zucchini very well! Definitely a keeper!!
