These were awesome! Great recipe! I had to half it to 2 servings and I did double the cheese and added a whole clove of garlic. I also baked in the oven for 30 minutes on 350 instead of grilled, but they turned out awesome! My husband LOVED them! Thanks for the recipe, we will make again and again!

I have to say I loved this recipe! Even my picky husband loved it...and since it was such a hit I made it again the very next day! I also had a few mushrooms i wanted to used so i chopped those up and added it when cooking the zucchini, and i aslo added crushed red pepper just to give it a little more spice. Both versions are delicious, but I liked your version best, but my husband liked the 2nd version, but he likes anything with a little more heat. Thanks so much..i might seriously make it again tomorrow since i have one more zucchini left. Thanks so much!

Pretty tasty. I didn't have any mint on hand, but added a little red pepper flake and some lemon pepper to season it. Will make again.
