Day 52: Cheese and Ground Beef Stuffed Zucchini

The original recipe is here.  Obviously, it's much better than my version...  Still, it should be yummy.

Cheese and Ground Beef Stuffed Zucchini
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  2. Butter (with non-stick butter-flavor spray) a baking dish.
  3. Brown beef in a skillet, then drain.
  4. Partially cook one small zucchini in the microwave on high for 5 minutes, then remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Combine fat-free cheddar cheese, non-fat cottage cheese, meat, and salt/pepper, in a small bowl.
  6. Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise and remove the seeds.  Spoon the mixture into each half.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes, then broil for a few minutes until golden brown.  Sprinkle with parsley.
  8. Serve with crispy lettuce salad.
