    I’ve made this!
    In zucchini instead of tomato.
    And omitting the chorizo.

    Other than that . . . identical.

    Except sometimes I used cheddar instead of gruyere.
    And oregano instead of parsley.
    And seasoned croutons for the breadcrumbs.

    Other than that . . . it’s this! :mrgreen:

      I sometimes use ready to cook stuffing (if I have it left over) instead of breadcrumbs. I am sure it works just as well in zucchini or on top of portabello mushrooms.
