Zucchini Boats

Zucchini boats are a great side dish that accompany essentially everything! They're fast and incredibly easy to make. They're also a great way to get picky eaters to eat their veggies as the stuffing masks the flavor of zucchini very well. It's essentially a pizza made with an all zucchini crust! 

1 zucchini makes 2 boats
Shredded mozzarella
Low sodium/low sugar organic marinara sauce

1.take a zucchini and cut it in half vertically. 
2. Scoop out the inside with a spoon in order to create a hollow crevice. Make sure to leave some "wall" room on both ends to stop any leaks (see in photo).
3. Stuff with whatever you desire! (or use ingredients above)
4. Stick on a baking sheet sprayed with EVOO and place in oven at 375F for 10-15 mins and voila!

I stuffed these with organic low sodium tomato sauce and topped then with some skim shredded mozzarella. I've also stuffed them with meat sauce and Parmesan with great results! So basically whatever you want should work great! Try them out they're so easy, delicious and fast to make!
