Serves 6-one half zucchini per person
3 zucchini squash
¼ cup finely minced onions
2 Tbsp. butter
½ cup bread crumbs
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
½ cup grated Swiss cheese
Parmesan or cheddar cheese
Wash zucchini and cut off ends. Drop into boiling water to cover for 10 minutes. Blanch in cold water. Drain and slice zucchini lengthwise. Scoop out pulp (with a grapefruit knife) and finely chop the pulp.
Sauté the onion in the butter until golden. Add the pulp, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and the Swiss cheese. Cook until soft and some of the moisture has evaporated.
Fill zucchini boats with mixture, dot with melted butter, cheese and bake in a 450º oven about 10 – 15 minutes, until hot and golden. Bake uncovered.
Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley.
