  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 3 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/8 tsp. sweet basil

Cut zucchini lengthwise and scoop out pulp, leaving a shell. Steam for 6-10 minutes.

For stuffing: Saute bell pepper, celery, onion, and garlic in butter until tender-crisp. Add water chestnuts, mushrooms, and tomatoes and saute for 2 more minutes. Add sweet basil, pepper, and half the shredded cheese. Mix all ingredients and stuff the zucchini shells.

Bake in 350 degree F oven for 25 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and place under broiler until cheese melts, about 1 minute.
