Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

loved it! I am going to make it for company this weekend!

I pre-cook 1 of ground turkey in the micro (meat in a colander over larger container, 7 minutes/pound) and let that cool while I'm assembling the rest of the zucchini boats. Makes a complete meal. There's more filling than the zucchini halves can hold, so I jus put the extra filling alongside the boats and those who want more can help themselves. Makes a complete meal in 1 pan. Whatever is left over can be used as a lunch for someone who works. YUM!

Ladybug, that's a good idea, but does the loose stuffing hold together on the side of the zucchini boats? I'm trying to think of another way. Maybe put the extra in mini muffin tins after forming a ball with it? That's funnty-"...for someone who works"! We all work don't we, whether it's inside the home or out? I know that I work all morning sometimes just to prepare a great dinner!

I like to fill zucchini boats with pizza toppings (crumbled sausage, pepperoni, onions, mushroom, etc.) mixed with pizza sauce, top with cheese, and bake. All of the flavor of pizza without the added calories from the crust.

I made this a couple nights ago and it very good and quite easy to put together. I served it with Italian flavored pork chops and my husband rated it a 9 out of 10. I've only gotten one 10 before so it's definitely a keeper.

I make this often....I also add mild hot sausage and shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the mix, with fresh mushrooms...also use sharp cheddar on top. Yumm!

I added ground beef for Hubby and used provolone slices on top because I didn't have mozzarella....yep, it was soooo good! And easy

My family loved this recipe. I also used fresh mushrooms.

Ok love all of your receipts I don't hav many teeth to chew with so soft things are great,I'm y myself and can't do much cooking, thanks
