Recipe for Zucchini Stuffed With Zucchini


6 medium zucchini, about 6 ozs each
3 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup onion; chopped
1 cup prosciutto or ham, about - 3 ozs.; finely chopped
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1 tablespoon parsley; chopped fresh
1/2 cup parmesan cheese; grated
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg; grated


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Trim ends from zucchini, but leave whole. Cook zucchini in a large saucepan of boiling salted water 3 mins; drain and rinse under cold running water. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Scoop out centers to form a trench down the middle of each half. Chop zucchini centers and place in a medium bowl.

2. In a medium frying pan, heat 2 Tbs olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook 2 to 3 mins, or until softened. Stir in prosciutto or ham, chopped zucchini, bread crumbs, and parsley. Cook, stirring once or twice, 2 mins. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, egg, salt, and nutmeg.

3. Stuff zucchini with bread crumb mixture. Place zucchini in a flameproof baking dish just large enough to hold them. Drizzle remaining 1 Tbs olive oil over zucchini and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

4. Bake 20 mins, or until heated through. Transfer to the broiler and broil 3 inches from heat until golden brown on top, 1 to 2 mins.
