This quick and easy dish can be served as a side dish or as a meal. 

2-4 lbs. fresh zucchini
1 garlic clove chopped
1 small onion chopped
Italian style breadcrumbs
Olive oil
Parmesan, romano or asiago cheese
       (grated or shredded)
Sea salt and pepper
Slice zucchini lengthwise.  Using a spoon scoop out the inside of the zucchini to form "boats" and place them in a lightly oiled baking dish.  In a bowl, coarsely chop the zucchini you have scooped out, add the garlic and onion, and toss with olive oil to coat.  Fill the  zucchini 'boats' with the mixture.  Sprinkle with breadcrumbs, cheese and season to taste with sea salt & pepper .

Bake in pre-heated 350 oven for 20 - 30 minutes (zucchini will be fork tender).

Additional tips:  You can add chopped tomatoes, chopped mushrooms, chives, tofu, or fresh herbs for variety.
