Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 30 mins 45 mins 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for drizzling

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and create a hollow well in each zucchini half. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped spinach, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  4. Spoon the spinach and feta mixture into the hollowed-out well of each zucchini half. Press the filling down gently to ensure it's packed tightly.
  5. Drizzle a little olive oil over each stuffed zucchini half to prevent them from drying out during baking.
  6. Place the stuffed zucchini halves on a baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven.
  7. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the zucchini is tender and the filling is golden brown and slightly bubbly.
  8. Once cooked, remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
