Stuffed Zucchini from Linda LaBoy

"I have been cooking since the late 1960s. My nanny and mom were big in the kitchen and I followed suit. I love creating new things and have always loved my vegetables. I stuffed zucchinis with all types of things, but this recipe is one of my husband's favorites. He’s Puerto Rican, and the olives and Sazon give it a nice Spanish flair." - Linda L.



2 zucchini 
1/2 lb ground beef
2 Tbsp EVOO
1 packet of Sazon
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
S&P to taste
The inside of the zucchini, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 tsp red hot peppers flakes
1/2 cup green olives, diced
1 Tbsp capers
1 cup shredded cheese (any type you like)


  1. Slice zucchini down the middle long ways. Scoop out the meat with a pointed spoon.
  2. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Bake in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes.
  3. Add oil to a large pan and pour in the Sazon and Garlic. Simmer for a minute and then add the beef.
  4. Using a spoon, separate the beef and create a sort of chili type mixture.
  5. Once the meat is no longer pink, add all the other ingredients except the cheese. Add a little bit water if the mixture is too dry.
  6. Once the zucchinis have cooked in the oven, add some cheese to the bottom of the cavity then top with a good scoop of the meat mixture.
  7. Top with a little more cheese and a little more sauce, if you like.
  8. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Delicious with a side of rice or crusty bread
