Zucchini stuffed with beef and cheese is an absolute crowd-pleaser that will leave you and anyone else you serve it to full and satisfied. If you want to get fancy and add some extra flavor, try subbing out the beef for ground lamb. Whatever meat you use, we recommend making extra; you'll want to eat the leftovers throughout the week.
