WHEN I WAS A KID IN STOCKTON, CA. THERE WAS AN ITALIAN DELI/GROCERY CALLED GIADELUCCI'S, STUFFED ZUCCHINI WAS A SIGNATUE ITEM. I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FIND A RECIPE THAT CAME CLOSE UNTIL THIS ONE. THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU HAVE GIVEN ONE PISANO A BIT OF HIS YOUTH BACK.

Sometimes ground meat is also used in stuffing zucchini. Describe the one you remembered in Stockton please-maybe I can help. I live about 45 minutes from there and stuffed zucchini-Italian style is a family favourite.
