Step 1

Place shells in an unbreased microwave safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 3 min or until crisp tender; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over med heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat; stir in the egg, marinara sauce, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and 1/2 c cheese.

Spoon about 1/4 c into each shell. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4 min. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Microwave 3-4 min longer or until zucchini are tender. Serve with more marinara sauce if desired.
