Stuffed Zucchini

Its that time of year where the garden starts pumping out Zucchini and Squash.  this is a great way to use some of it! its easily altered to your taste.
Here’s what you need:
  • 2 good size squashes for stuffing
  • 1 turkey pattie
  • 4 slices of turkey bacon
  • Feta cheese from westmoreland farmers market!!
  • Steamfresh rice with tomatoes, spinach and onions
  • 2 tablespoons of EVOO
  • 1 Tablespoon of minced garlic
  • Italian seasoning
Start by slicing  about 1/4 off the squash lengthwise, then add it to a pan of boiling water till its fork tender
Cook the turkey pattie and bacon in a pan while the rice steams in the microwave
Remove the Turkey from the pan and set aside while it cools down.  in the pan add the evoo, garlic and rice. Chop of the turkey and bacon and add to the pan along with Salt, pepper and seasoning.
Mix well and let everything get warm and blended.  remove from heat and add about 1/2 cup of the feta cheese.

scoop the middle of your squash out. I take the seeds out first and trash them. Then some of the squash. I like about 1/4 inch wall. I add the removed squash to the rice mixture
Scoop the rice mixture into the squash boats.
Looks yummy right?! So one squash feeds my family.  its great with a salad.  I just put the other one in a freezer bag and save it for later this fall/winter
you can add more veggies like cukes, tomatoes ect.  you could even add bread crumbs.
Now that the garden is producing watch for more.   I have been tagging lots of yummy ideas!
