And now, after that, let’s talk about our stuffed zucchini! It’s a nice recipe, perfect for Spring. It’s not too hot to avoid using the oven, and the veggies are awesome. I boiled rice to eat at the same time, but you can change it for another thing, or eat just the vegetables. It’s up to you, my happy pixels!!
