Consider that Abella’s other customers in Anchor Bay Gardens, MI have almost split this answer in the middle with about 50% choosing light tops and 50% choosing dark, so whatever you choose there is no right or wrong answer.

Creamy Meat-Stuffed Zucchini (Shelby Township, MI)

Ingredients
2 large thick zucchinis, ends trimmed 1 teaspoon vegetable oil 1/2 onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 3/4 pound ground beef 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika 2 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3/4 cup milk 1/4 teaspoon white pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, or to taste salt to taste 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Directions
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and immerse the zucchini in the boiling water. Set heat to medium, and cook the zucchini until they feel slightly soft when pressed with a wooden spoon, about 20 minutes. Drain the zucchini, and set aside to cool.
Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ground beef, and cook and stir the meat, breaking it up as it cooks, until the beef is no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Stir in the paprika, and set the beef mixture aside.
Cut the zucchinis in half lengthwise, and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, leaving a 1/2-inch thick shell. Chop the scooped-out zucchini flesh, and mix into the ground beef mixture.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and whisk in the flour until smooth. Pour in the milk, a little at a time, and bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking constantly. Whisk in white pepper, nutmeg, and salt, and stir in half the Parmesan cheese to create a smooth sauce. Mix the white sauce thoroughly with the ground beef mixture. Place the zucchini halves into a baking dish. Fill the zucchini shells with the creamy beef mixture, and sprinkle each with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the remaining Parmesan cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven until the Parmesan cheese topping begins to turn golden brown, about 15 minutes.
