When all the beau­ti­ful squash are fresh, I love to make Slow Cook­er Stuffed Zuc­chi­ni! Enjoy!

  1. This recipe is great espe­cial­ly when you have fresh zuc­chi­ni! Enjoy and Hap­py Crock­ing!
  2. To toast pine nuts, place them in a small non­stick skil­let over medi­um heat, stir­ring occa­sion­al­ly until gold­en or about 5 min­utes.
  3. Place the zuc­chi­ni halves in the bot­tom of an oval slow cook­er.
  4. In a bowl or mea­sur­ing cup, com­bine the toma­to sauce and vine­gar.
  5. In anoth­er bowl, com­bine the onions, gar­lic, rice, pars­ley, basil, pep­per, along with 2 table­spoons of the toma­to sauce-vine­gar mix­ture.
  6. Fill the zuc­chi­ni halves with the rice mix­ture.
  7. Top with the remain­ing toma­to sauce-vine­gar mix­ture.
  8. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 4–6 hours or until the rice is ten­der.

Gar­nish with the pine nuts, fresh herbs, and cheese.

Note: This recipe is also good for non-veg­e­tar­i­ans by adding ground pork, ground turkey, or ground beef!

Option­al: Great to dou­ble for a larg­er group!
