This was so good! I didn't have any mint so I used fresh basil from the garden, and added extra garlic. I'm going to use this again and again and again. My non-dieting husband loved it, too.

This is very yummy and very filling. I have served this with grilled chicken breast for a complete meal.

I made this tonight and it was absolutely AMAZING!!! :) Thanks sooooo much! I definitely WILL make this again!
Great recipe, I used basil instead of mint more garlic, 1/2 teas Italian seasoning, pinch of red pepper flakes and "Panko" bread crumbs, used only 2 teas olive oil to sauté filling and sprayed the zucchini and top of filling with Pam olive oil spray. Baked at 350 till tender. Served as an appetizer with individual 1/4 cup servings of homemade pasta sauce for dipping. This recipe is a keeper.
