Stuffed Zucchini

My whole family loves this quick and easy entree.

1 zucchini per person
spanish rice
cheese - your choice, I like velveeta
1/2 pound loose fried and drained hamburger
ketchup or tomato paste

Slice the zucchini length wise and scoop out inside to make a shell.  Boil in lightly salted water till tender and drain.  Take the fried hamburger and mix with Spanish Rice.  As to the Spanish rice it's up to you which type you like - there are canned brands, quick cook brands, and more.  Just use whatever fits your taste buds and life style.  If the mixture is too dry add a little ketchup or tomato paste. Fill the zucchini shells with meat mixture and put in a casserole dish.  Put cheese over the top and bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until cheese melts. 

Another variation is to use large crescent roll canned dough and roll the stuffed zucchini up inside the crescent dough before baking.  This makes a great self contained entree!  You could also use prepared puff pastry.
