Zucchini Boat Recipe

Sometimes we just want to go home to comfort food. But instead of going for that bowl of pasta or some cream-filled soup, why don't you try a healthier option like this Zucchini boat. We're happy to share this delish recipe from our friends at Taste of Home.

Yields: 4 servings  Prep Time: 35 mins Bake Time: 25 mins  Total Time: 60 mins


Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini (about 8 inches)
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions

      1. Trim the ends off zucchini. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving 1/2-in. shells. Finely chop pulp.
      2. In a skillet, cook beef, zucchini pulp, onion, mushrooms and peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
      3. Remove from the heat. Add 1/2 cup cheese, ketchup, salt and pepper; mix well. Spoon into the zucchini shells.
      4. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
      5. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Yield: 4 servings.

        When scooping out the pulp for Zucchini Boats, a teaspoon is just the right size. Use your food processor or blender to finely chop the pulp quickly.
