    We have 8 zucchini plants and I love to stuff them if they get too big, so I came up with this one night when I had leftover taco meat and way too much zucchini. My DH loved it!

      Very good. We used beef broth instead of the water when adding the taco seasoning to the meat. Subbed cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese. I did 2 zukes but had leftover filling so i stuffed 2 green peppers and topped with sliced tomatoes also. Will make this again.

      We really enjoyed this. A great way to use up leftover taco meat and zucchini. I didn't have those big garden zucchini so I used some that were smaller(what you'd buy at the grocery store) and it took about 4 of them for the filling ingredients. Great meal! Thanks for sharing.
