Yum! I grab those round zucchini whenever I happen to encounter them. I like them so much better than the usual long variety for stuffing, but they can be hard to find in these parts... !

I love those little round zucchinis! I must find some!

Lynda England Hardy

What a perfect way to use those little zucchinis! I only ever see them at our Farmer's Market and now I'll be on the lookout for them!

Wendy Klik

I have never seen these cute little zucchini before. Just adorable and they sound yummy. Stuffed is quite the impression I got as well. I don't know how Ruth ate all that food...and is not as big as a house!

Simona Carini

Agree, the round ones are much better for stuffing, Frank. I am lucky farmers here grow them :)

Simona Carini

I hope you will, Debra :)

Simona Carini

Me too, Lynda. I think they are considered a bit of a specialty item, and given their shape they take more space. Hurrah for Farmers' Markets! :)

Simona Carini

I hope you can find some Wendy: they are really perfect for stuffing and the result is prettier than when one uses the long ones :)

Simona -- we have a farmer near me who raises multitudes of heirloom produce, one of which is the sweet little zucchini you featured in your post. It's not a french variety, but its nickname is "cueball". I stuffed them something along the line of how you did, and they made for individual side dishes that everyone loved. As to the book, I too liked Tender to the Bone a bit better than this current selection but they are all great reads

Simona Carini

The cue ball looks nice! I will the other stuffings soon: as you say, they make a nice dish :)


I'd have to order the seeds for those cute little zucchini as they're not in the market here. Your stuffed cue balls would make super appetizers, and look delicious. Thanks for asking, the air quality here has improved, not that it was bad where our place is. The volcano seems to have quieted down.
