Next heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Brown the ground beef or turkey with the seasonings.

Add the onion and the peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Drain any excess grease. Then add the tomato paste.

Stir everything together and continue to cook for about 5 minutes then remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.

Spoon the filling inside of each zucchini until they are all full.

Sprinkle each with cheese then arrange them in the dish and cover with foil.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes then remove the foil and set the oven to broil.

Cook them for 5 more minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.

Allow them to cool for 5 min and serve.
