Stuffed Zucchini Recipe



This stuffed zucchini recipe is great on the grill but if the weather is bad, you can always bake it in a preheated 350° oven.

In the summertime, I'm always looking for different ways to cook zucchini and yellow squash. It seems like there is always an abundance of squash and trying to find new ways to fix it can be a challenge but I think once you try this grilled stuffed zucchini you'll be making it over and over...all summer long.
