This Italian Stuffed Zucchini is for one of those nights when you crave Italian food. We love Italian food, but most of the dishes are packed with carbs, like pizza, pasta, lasagna all the delicious food we love.  This stuffed zucchini is so flavourful that you won’t miss the carbs.




The tender zucchini is stuffed with lightly sautéed fresh tomatoes, zucchini, garlic and Italian spices. Also, there is mozzarella and parmesan cheese, which makes the stuffing gooey and cheesy.

The naturally gluten-free vegetarian recipe is super simple to make. Once you have made the stuffing, which takes only 5 minutes, then you fill the zucchini shells, sprinkle with some more cheese and bake.
