Very quick and easy to prepare....a wonderful idea for those who have children that are a little picky about eating their vegetables. Absolutely EVERYONE at the dinner table loved them and we ranged from 7 to 64 years of aged so it was suitable for all. My husband who generally is not a sweet based person when it comes to vegetables loved the di"

This was an amazing recipe, I followed to the letter aside from the fact that I used ground lamb for my filling, and I used a 5 cheese Italian Blend. The slight sweetness of the lamb adds a WONDERFUL flavor to the Zucchini. As ALWAYS I am NEVER disappointed with Giada's recipes and I think Raffy is a gem!!!!!! My friends love your recipes and I "
