Ingredients: Olive oil Chopped onion Salt & pepper Garlic Zucchini Cheese (Gruyere & Ricotta) Egg Scallions Mixed herbs  Toasted pine nuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rub your baking sheet with olive oil.


Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, add onion, and season with salt & pepper. Cook until soft & golden. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly.


Cut zucchinis in half lengthwise. Use a small spoon to scrape out the inside seeds and flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch border.


Cut a small section off the bottom of the zucchini halves so they lay flat without rolling around. Place the zucchini shells in the prepared baking dish.


Add grated cheese, ricotta, egg, scallions, and herbs to the bowl with the onions. Season with salt & pepper; mix well.


Spoon the filling down the center of each zucchini. Sprinkle extra cheese evenly over the top. Bake until tender & golden. Let cool slightly before garnishing with herbs and pine nuts.
