Stuffed Vegetables with Vegetables!

I had a couple really large zucchini and decided that they'd make lovely "boats" for something. I had a nice eggplant and some chopped greek olives so that was the beginning of my stuffing! I added some other items and it all came together quite well. It helps to have a well stocked pantry so you can whip dinner up without too much trouble or having to run to the store. I hate running to the store for an item or two. I will go to great lengths to avoid that.

2 large zucchini, cut in half and hollowed out
1 medium eggplant, peeled and diced
1 onion, chopped
red pepper flakes
olive oil
1 jar spaghetti sauce ( I used Mario Batali Tomato Basil)
some bread crumbs
some shredded parmesan

In skillet, brown the onion and the eggplant in some olive oil. Add the red pepper flakes. Stir in olives and the sauce and then simmer for 1/2 hour.

Preheat to 400
Fill the zucchini boats. Add some olive oil to the bread crumbs and Parm and then sprinkle that mixture over the boats. Bake for around 40 minutes or so.
