    Definitely a fun new way to use ground beef and zucchini! Also tried with Italian seasonings and slices of smoked Gouda instead of mozzarella. I would like to try broiling them to crisp the cheese! Note: the recipe doesn't say when to use the onions, so I browned them in butter and then added my beef.
