  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place zucchini in a large microwaveable bowl with 3 tablespoons water. Cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes or until tender. Let cool.
  2. Scoop out pulp from zucchini, leaving a long cavity for stuffing. Place pulp in a bowl and mix with brown rice, tomatoes, beans, olives and basil.
  3. Place the zucchini shells in a baking dish. Stuff the zucchini with the stuffing mixture.
  4. Top with grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for about 30 minutes, until cheese is golden brown.

Recipe Tips

Use peppers in place of summer squash.

Try different grains like couscous or quinoa.
