Zucchini Stuffed with Feta Cheese and Roasted Red Peppers
2 6 oz. zucchini
1/3 C. finely chopped roasted peppers
1/2 C. finely chopped feta cheese
1/8 t. dried oregano
freshly ground black pepper
Cut zucchini into 3/4 inch crosswise sections. Scoop out the center with a melon baller. Do not go all the way through, you are forming a cavity for the center.
In a steamer set over simmering water steam the zucchini shells, covered, 4 minutes, or until barely tender but still bright green. Transfer shells to a paper towel towel and drain upside down.
Stir together the roasted pepper, feta cheese, oregano and pepper. in a small bowl. Mound a small amount in each shell. Arrange zucchini’s in a lightly oiled, shallow ovenproof dish and broil about 4 inches from the heat until bubbling and beginning to turn golden brown, about 4 minutes.
Makes about 16 pieces.
