Summer yields some of the best produce! Our Italian Stuffed Zucchini Boats are a creative way to utilize some of those delicious veggies you have growing in your garden or picked up from the market!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoons fresh basil, chopped
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cut zucchinis in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp and seeds, leaving 1/4-inch shell (use a small spoon for this). Reserve pulp from both zucchinis and chop.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine pulp, garlic, tomato, mushrooms, basil, oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, olive oil and 1/2 cup cheese. Divide mixture evenly between zucchini shells. Place stuffed zucchinis in prepared baking dish; cover with foil.
  4. Bake 25 minutes, or until zucchinis are tender. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Top with fresh basil and serve.
Notes

There's so much you can do with zucchini! Why not bake a loaf of our Super Moist Zucchini Bread?!
