Finishing the stuffed zucchini with goat cheese -- 45 minutes

Cook the bacon in a medium-sized skillet, no need to add extra olive oil. After a few minutes, add the chopped shallot and garlic and sauté for a few more minutes.

Finely chop a handful of fresh sage and stir it into the bacon. Drizzle the zucchinis with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Then divide a spoonful of the bacon over the zucchinis. Then add a little grated cheese and then the rest of the bacon.

Finish with the rest of the grated cheese and a slice of goat cheese. Bake the zucchini in the oven for about half an hour, the exact time depends on the oven and the size of the zucchinis. Enjoy!
