Rachael Ray's Stuffed Zucchini
From: Rachael Ray's Stuffed Picnic (http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_27210,00.html?rsrc=search), which includes Stuffed Tomatoes (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1731594#post1731594)and Stuffed Apples (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1731619#post1731619)
Serves: 6

Ingredients:
1 (15-ounce) can chick peas, drained
2 roasted red peppers, drained
8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 clove garlic, cracked from skin
1/2 lemon, juiced
Salt and coarse black pepper
2 medium zucchini squash, washed

Directions:
Combine chick peas and next 4 ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise. Hollow out seeds, making room for filling, using a soup spoon. Fill squash with chick pea and red pepper cheese using a rubber spatula. Cut the zucchini into 2 inch pieces.

Note (from Laurie): The filling is a bit runny...when I make it again, I think I'll add a second can of chickpeas to make it thicker. This makes MUCH more than you need. It would make a great dip for veggies in P1 or WW crackers or pita chips in P2.

You don't cook it at all? I was just imagining how heavenly it was going to smell in my broiler!
