Zucchini (Courgette) Stuffed with Orzo and Feta

Cooking time: 45 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      Another stuffed zucchini. Baking the 'shells' first helps them get cooked through and shortens the total time. This should finish the feta.

Zucchini (Courgette) Stuffed with Orzo and Feta

Total time: 40 minutes
     I used 2 medium zucchini for this, 7" each (17cm), both green.  You could use one larger one, 9" (22cm). Not all of the 'stuffing' will fit, just keep it warm and serve it on the side.  You could use other small pasta in place of the orzo.
