    Good greif! Why did you leave the seeds in?
    Scoop them out and fill them when cooked with
    rice, pilaf, etc.

    The “seeds” are just part of the vegetable. They are not something that needs to be removed. Scooping out the meat of the zucchini and adding rice/pilaf (ew) would absolutely ruin this dish for me and I’m sure many others. Adding some ricotta and/or sauce, however is fantastic :) You don’t need to scoop it out to do so.

  2. I agree – adding rice/pilaf would wreck the zucchini! We’re actually having this tonight with a nice meatloaf and baked potatoes…Yum!

  4. You must be thinking of some other kind of Squash! Zucchini’s seeds are wonderful and I would never think of “scooping them out!”

  8. Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!
