  • 1-1/2 lbs (.7 kg). ground beef or lamb
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups (475 ml) cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) raisins
  • 3 cups (700 ml) tomato sauce seasoned to taste with salt, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and curry.
  • Cut ends from zucchini and split lengthwise; remove seeds and discard.
  • Saute meat and onion until meat is browned and onions are tender.
  • Add raisins and cook until raisins are puffed up.
  • Add precooked rice and mix completely.
  • Stuff zucchini with meat and rice mixture and place in a baking dish.
  • Heat spiced tomato sauce and pour over stuffed zucchinis to cover.
  • Bake in a 400 degree (200 C.) oven until zucchini are tender and most of the tomato sauce is absorbed.
A large zucchini in this recipe is about 6-8 inches long. For some of us who garden, that is just a little whipper snapper.. to us, a big one looks like an enlongated football!

This is truly delicious.
