2 tablespoons margarine or butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Instructions

  3. In a mixing bowl, blend together the potato pulp, milk and margarine until creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the green onions and mozzarella cheese.
  4. Reduce oven to 350F.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large pan coated with nonstick cooking spray, saute the broccoli, squash, green pepper, onions, tomatoes, vinegar and basil over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Carefully fold the vegetables into the potato mixture.
  6. Stuff the potato shells with the mixture. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until well heated and the cheese is melted.
