8 cups water

3 medium (7-inch) zucchini, halved lengthwise

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter

1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg, slightly beaten

1/2 cup uncooked medium roasted buckwheat groats (kasha)

1 cup water

1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon granules

1/2 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary leaves

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 cups prepared spaghetti or pasta sauce, warmed

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Bring 8 cups water to a full boil in 4-quart saucepan; add zucchini halves. Cover; cook over medium-high heat 6-8 minutes or until crisply tender. Drain; rinse with cold water. With melon ball scoop or spoon, scoop seeds and pulp from zucchini, leaving 1/4-inch shell; reserve 1/2 cup pulp. Drain reserved pulp; chop coarsely. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Place zucchini shells in 11x7-inch baking dish; set aside. Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add onion and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat until onion is crisply tender.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine beaten egg and kasha in small bowl; stir until coated. Add kasha to skillet with onion and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes or until kernels are separate and dry.

  5. STEP 5

    Reduce heat to medium; stir in reserved zucchini pulp, water, bouillon granules, rosemary and pepper. Cover; continue cooking 7-10 minutes or until kasha is tender and liquid is absorbed.

  6. STEP 6

    Remove from heat; stir in Parmesan cheese. Spoon kasha mixture evenly into zucchini shells. Bake 15-20 minutes or until zucchini is heated through. To serve, spoon warm spaghetti sauce over stuffed zucchini.
