Zucchini, Stuffed III (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 6

3 medium zucchini
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook whole zucchini in boiling salted water about 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain. Cut in half length-wise. Scoop out centers, leaving 1/4" shell. Chop center portion and set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet. Sauté mushrooms about 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour and oregano. Remove from heat. Stir in Monterey Jack cheese and pimiento. Stir in the reserved chopped zucchini. Heat mixture through.

Preheat broiler. Fill zucchini shells using approximately 1/4 cup filling for each. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Broil several inches from source of heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Note: Stuffed zucchini may be assembled in advance, covered and refrigerated up to 4 hours. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes instead of 3 to 5.
