Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini

Mediterranean Stuffed Zucchini
  • 1 extra large zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • coarse salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Use a melon baller to separate and remove seeds and pulp separately from the zucchini, carving out each half and leaving about a half-inch shell. Chop zucchini pulp into pieces about 1/4 inch in diameter. Discard seeds.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ground lamb; continue to cook and stir until lamb is lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir chopped zucchini into the lamb mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer mixture until the zucchini is hot, about 3 minutes. Drain excess grease. Season lamb mixture with coarse salt and black pepper.
  4. Remove skillet from heat. Stir tomato sauce, tomatoes, feta cheese, pine nuts, and 1/4 cup mint leaves through the lamb mixture; spoon into the zucchini halves. Put stuffed zucchini halves into a large baking dish. Pour water into the baking dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Mix bread crumbs and mozzarella cheese in a bowl. Sprinkle 1/4 cup mint leaves over the zucchini and top with the bread crumb mixture. Continue baking until the top is crusty and browned, about 10 minutes more.
