Description

Four different types of meat—ground beef, ground pork, sausage, and bologna—are combined in the filling for zucchini in this hearty main course. The zucchini are first blanched to make tender, stuffed with the meat mixture, topped with cheese and a homemade tomato sauce, and baked until everything is heated through and the cheese is melted, followed by a quick pass under the broiler to give it some tasty browned spots. All this in less than an hour.
