Italian Tuna Skillet Recipe

Dressed up a little, this classic dish is no where near what you would expect in a tuna casserole it's better than ever Italian style. The flavors are rich and delicious almost Alfredo style but even creamier. I love the Italian twist we put int this one and the addition of the tuna, peas adds an abundance of flavors.

Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini Recipe

We love zucchini and try to come up with all kinds of ways to stuff it. This one is our favorite. If you have leftover roasted chicken, here is the best recipe and the kids all love it.

Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Zucchini Recipe

6 zucchini sliced lengthwise and hollowed out      
(save the insides for zucchini bread)
1 - 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
fresh chopped basil, parsley  (around 1 tablespoon each)
leftover roasted or rotisserie chicken off the bone or any kind of cooked chicken around 2 cups

Optional: instead of cheese use ricotta cheese mixed with mozzarella, 1 beaten egg and grated cheese

Tip: if you have breaded leftover chicken cutlets or use store bought they work great also. We use the roasted to cut calories without the breading on it.

shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese grated
salt, pepper to taste
granulated garlic
olive oil
oregano dried if you like it
1 cup white wine Pino Grigio is what I use

 Grease a 13 x9 deep baking pan with cooking spray. Fill all the hollowed out squash with some roasted chicken. Pour the tomatoes over the whole pan evenly. Generously sprinkle shredded mozzarella over the top and grated cheese. 

Sprinkle with granulated garlic, herbs and drizzle olive oil over the top lightly.
Bake the stuffed squash covered for 1/2 hour. Remove cover and bake until soft and  cheese is browned and bubbling, around an hour on 400 degree preheated oven.
