  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 3/4 pound ground chicken
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper

  4. Spoon mixture into zucchini shells.
  5. Pour the remaining sauce on the bottom of ungreased baking dish.
  6. Place stuffed zucchini shells on top of sauce, sprinkle with 3/4 cup Italian cheese blend.
  7. Bake, covered, 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  8. Bake, uncovered, until zucchini is tender and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes longer.
