Personal Notes:
I don’t like the idea of mixing fillers, like bread crumbs with ground meat. So I took the idea of meatloaf and my mom’s regular stuffed zucchini to make this recipe. The meat mixture doesn’t need the egg or bread crumbs because the squash holds it all together, and the Mediterranean spin on meatloaf gives it more intense flavors.
