Zucchini stuffed with minced meat and rice

Tasty zucchini stuffed with rice and meat that is very filling. I love round zucchini, but you can also replace it with a long one. Perfect for lunch and dinner. It is also effective, so we can serve it to guests as it can be ready in the oven.

You can sharpen it a little by adding some chilli flakes.

A fresh salad is also perfect for serving.
