Mrs. Kane, a loyal Friend of Cucurbit Farm, gave us this recipe for stuffed zucchini and it wasn't half bad... Who are we kidding, it was GREAT! And she used zucchini from Cucurbit Farm, which makes it a winner in our book. Now if we could just get her to bring some more over. She even took the picture, which is making us drool just looking at it. Bravo Mrs. Kane!
