Ingredients

3 medium zucchini
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
1 cup (250 mL) chopped fresh mushrooms
3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 egg, beaten
pinch of ground marjoram

Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

In large saucepan, cook zucchini in boiling water 5 minutes; drain. Split zucchini lengthwise, scoop out pulp and chop. Reserve shells.

Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Stir in egg, marjoram and half of the Canadian Cheddar cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place zucchini shells in shallow baking dish. Divide mushroom-zucchini mixture evenly among shells. Combine bread crumbs and 1 tbsp (15 mL) melted butter. Sprinkle over filled shells. Top with remaining Canadian Cheddar cheese. Bake 30 minutes or until heated through.
