Meat Stuffed Zucchini

2 zucchini (about 1 lb. each)

1 lb. ground round steak

1/2 C. bread crumbs

1/2 small onion finely chopped

1 large garlic clove minced

1/2 C. grated Romano cheese

3 large basil leaves crushed

1 egg

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. black pepper

1/2 t. garlic salt

Cut the ends off the zucchini and cut into 3 pieces. Put them into lightly salted boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Cut each piece in half and scoop out the seeds and set in a oiled baking pan that will hold the 12 pieces flat on the bottom.

Heat 2 T. oil in a skillet and saute the onion for 3 minutes. Place the bread crumbs, garlic, cheese, basil, egg, pepper and salt in a bowl. Mix and combine it. Add the onion and ground beef. Mix well and shape into 12 pieces that will fit inside the zucchini’s. Bake for 25 minutes in a 400°F. oven. Cover with the sauce and bake another 10 minutes. Sprinkle with additional cheese if desired.
