“I found this recipe in a cookbook from Machias, NY. They have an annual zucchini festival. If you like small town festivals with big flavor you will like this. You can use cottage cheese in place of ricotta.”

Directions

  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds as well as a little flesh. (Make it like a canoe.).
  2. Parboil in a large pan of salted water until tender-crisp. (Parboil means to boil for a very short period of time.).
  3. In the meantime mix together the ricotta, mozzarella, 1/4 C Parmesan, egg, parsley, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  4. Fill the zucchini with the cheese mixture.
  5. Cover the bottom of a large casserole baking dish with a thin layer of spaghetti sauce. Arrange stuffed zucchini on top and pour remaining sauce over top. Cover with foil.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30 minute
  7. Remove foil and sprinkle with 1/4 C Parmesan cheese.
