Coarsely chop the remaining pulp of the zucchini, add red bell peppers, spring onions and tomatoes, make sure you have drained any water from this mixture. Add the ketchup and for extra punch add chili-garlic sauce and mix well- keep aside.

Brush olive oil on the inside of the scooped zucchini halves and evenly spoon vegetable mixture into it. Top with cheese and bread crumbs. Bake 25-30 minutes or until zucchinis are tender. Garnish with freshly ground pepper, parmesan, salt and basil flakes. Cut it into bite sizes. Let it cool before serving. This quick snack is great for your picky eater.
