Stuffed Zucchini with Tomatoes and Mozzarella // Pair this stuffed zucchini as a side dish or enjoy it as a main dish - either way you will love it! | Tried and TastyWe’ve got zucchini growing like a weed in our garden. I suppose that’s how it grows. Extraordinarily well. I mentioned it before in my post for the “No Really, It’s Healthy Zucchini Bread” that last year so many of our zucchini went to waste because I just plum didn’t know what to do with them all. This year I’m determined that I will use them and not ALL for zucchini bread. So far we’ve had the bread, we’ve had it on the grill, and now we’ve had a stuffed variation. We were able to not only use the zucchini from our garden, but also the tomatoes (I used cherry) and the fresh oregano! Very exciting and VERY fresh! One bite and I quickly realized that this tastes identical to pizza. Only a gajillion times better for you! Actually, you could even do this on the grill if you like. Pair this side dish with just about anything, or have it as your main dish. Either way, you will surely fall in love with it!
