6 medium zucchinis, unpeeled, ends trimmed and scored with a fork
1 tsp salt
1 T oil
2 slices firm white bread, broken
1 egg
1 extra egg yolk
3T chopped fresh basil
nutmeg, pepper, salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350░
Cut 8-1-1/2" lengths of zucchini. Place cut side down and scoop pulp with a melon baller, leaving about 1/4" walls and bottom. Reserve the pulp. Sprinkle shells with 1/2 tsp salt and invert on paper towels for 30 minutes to leech out the juice.
Chop the pulp in a food processor. With the shredder blade, process ends of zucchini not used for the shells. Heat oil in a large pan, add the pulp mix and cook until dry over medium heat, stirring frequently (takes about 15 minutes) Place bread in workbowl and process until fine. Add rest of ingredients to the pulp and adjust seasonings so mix is highly seasoned. Fill zucchini shells, set in pan and pour 1/4" of water in bottom. Tent with foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
