Stuffed Zucchini

I have been reading a lot of recipes lately for Stuffed Zucchini. The craving finally set in, and it was time for me to give it a go! There are many varieties of Stuffed
Zucchini, here is what I did. Enjoy.

3 Zucchinis
1/2 Small Onion
1/2 Bell Pepper (Red, Green or Yellow - Your Preference)
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Tomato
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 Tablespoons chopped basil
3/4 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1/4 Cup Shaved Parmesan Cheese

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees*

1. Cut 2 of your zucchinis in half, lengthwise. Using a spoon, scrape out the inside, removing the seeds.

2. Dice up the remaining zucchini, onion, bell pepper and garlic and saute in a skillet with 1 Tablespoon of butter for about 5 minutes. To the saute, add the diced tomato, tomato paste and the Basil. Continue cooking for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat, and scoop into the hollow zucchini. 

3. In the same skillet, brown breadcrumbs. Remove from heat and stir in the shaved Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle bread crumbs on Zucchini and place in the oven for approximately 15-20 minutes, until the zucchini can be pierced with a fork.

4. Time to eat!
