These baskets of courgettes with vegetables and cheeses, delicious!

It sounds like you’re describing a delightful dish featuring zucchini baskets filled with vegetables and cheeses. Here’s a simple recipe for making these delicious baskets:


– 4 medium zucchinis (courgettes)
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 small onion, diced
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 bell pepper, diced
– 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
– 1/2 cup diced mushrooms
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– 1 cup shredded cheese (such as mozzarella, cheddar, or a blend)
– Fresh herbs, such as parsley or basil, for garnish (optional)


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Cut the zucchinis in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out the seeds and flesh from the center of each zucchini half, leaving about 1/4-inch thickness around the edges to form a “basket.” Reserve the scooped-out flesh for later use.

3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.

4. Add the diced bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and diced mushrooms to the skillet. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Meanwhile, chop the reserved zucchini flesh into small pieces. Add them to the skillet with the cooked vegetables and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

6. Place the hollowed-out zucchini halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

7. Spoon the cooked vegetable mixture evenly into each zucchini basket, filling them to the top.

8. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of each filled zucchini basket.

9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the zucchini is tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

10. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

11. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired, and serve these delicious zucchini baskets with vegetables and cheeses as a tasty side dish or light meal.

These zucchini baskets are not only delicious but also a great way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet. Feel free to customize the filling with your favorite vegetables and cheeses to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy!
