1. Tomatoes (mine and Stefania's favorite):
As for the shell you can do one of two things Option 1: Steam the zucchini shell for about 3 minutes till tender. Cool down then stuff when ready. This will cut down the cooking time when they are stuffed and in the oven. Option 2: Set the shell aside in a pan till ready to be stuffed. If you choose to stuff them when the zucchini is raw it will take longer in the oven to cook almost 1 hour.
3. Bell Peppers:
4. Stuffing the vegetables:
This is where the helpers come in for the stuffing and pouring sauce in the bottom of the baking dishes and over the vegetables. If allowed sprinkle a little mozzarella cheese. Then cover and cook for about 20-30 minutes. Remove the cover the last 5 miinutes.
Enjoy your summer stuffed vegetables!
There will be a post in the next day or two of how I used the insides of the vegetables.
