Its that time of the year.  I went out to the garden today to pick some cucumbers and found a huge zucchini. Tonight I think I may bake a zucchini boat with it.  Yum!


  • 6 medium zucchini (Or 2-3 large)
  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, melted


  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out and reserve pulp, leaving 3/8-in. shell. Cook shells in salted water for 2 minutes; remove and drain. Chop zucchini pulp; place in a bowl. Add the bread crumbs, eggs, tomato, Parmesan cheese, parsley and garlic. Stir in broth, salt and pepper. Stuff into zucchini shells.
  2. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Drizzle with butter. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. (Recipe from Allrecipes.com)

 I also got some peppers, basil & parsley.  Now if the roma tomatoes would ripen, I could makes some delicious salsa.

Do you have a garden this year?  Any good garden recipes to share?

    Sounds good… that is what I have planned for the huge zucchini we got this week from our CSA! I also made a Summer Squash Pizza on the grill the other day with fresh squash and basil from the garden. It calls for tomatoes though.. and ours are not ready yet either so I just put a bit of sauce under the veggies. We also added a bit of mozz cheese because we are super cheese lovers! Delish!!!
