Baked Stuffed Zucchini with Cheese

Round courgettes stuffed with mashed potatoes rich in stringy cheese, onions and spices. They can be enriched and customized with different ingredients, such as cubes of ham, or bacon, change the cheese using mozzarella or adding on top of the breadcrumbs cheese for a crunchy effect.

In any case, they will be a success. Just cut the top of the zucchini and dig the inside with a vegetable digger or with a teaspoon, being careful not to pierce the shell. Once emptied, blanch the shells and caps in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Make sure that the water completely enters the hollows. Drain them well as they dry and prepare the filling. Fill them and bake them for 20 minutes and that’s it!
