I’ve tried several kinds of zucchini boats, this is the first one that my husband likes well enough to ask if I made extra for lunch the next day!
- 3 large zucchinis
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 lb of ground meat (I used Chicken)
- 24 oz of Pasta Sauce of your choice (Tomato Basil)
- Feta Cheese
- Kalamata Olives
Preheat the oven to 350°. Slice and scoop out the insides of the zucchinis. Place them on a baking sheet and in the oven for 20-30 mins until tender. The time will depend on the size of the zucchinis. Smaller, takes less time. Precooking the zucchinis is a key step, if they’re not precooked, they’re too hard to enjoy. While the zucchinis are in the oven, brown the ground meat. Once browned and drained, add the spaghetti sauce. My crowd loves garlic, so I added 2 cloves of garlic to the sauce. Once that’s done, check the tenderness of the zucchinis, if tender, remove them from the oven and spoon them full of the ground meat sauce. Sprinkle them with feta cheese and olives (if you prefer olives), put in the oven for 10 minutes.
I put my olives on the last 5 minutes they’re in the oven, all you really want to go is get the olives hot.
Enjoy! These are really good – and good for you!
