{NEW} Italian Stuffed Zucchini Boats??⁣

It’s full-on ZUCCHINI SEASON! Do you have zucchini growing in your garden? If not, zucchini is now in-season and so plentiful that you’ll find it VERY inexpensive at the Farmer’s Market right now…that’s if your neighbors don’t leave a bag of it on your front porch as mine often do here in Utah. ?⁣

I’m SHARING a ton of zucchini recipes this upcoming week starting with this one…so stay v close to the CFC social media sites for all the Summertime Best-of ✔⁣

makes 4-6 servings⁣

4 medium zucchini⁣
cooking oil spray (I love avocado oil spray)⁣
1 Tbsp olive oil, or avocado oil ⁣
1 small yellow onion, diced small ⁣
2 small, fresh garlic cloves, minced ⁣
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey, ground chicken, or Italian sausage (or any combination)⁣
sea salt and pepper, to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)⁣
2 tsps Italian seasonings ⁣
1 jar (8 oz.) high quality marinara sauce⁣
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese⁣
2 Tbsp fresh chopped fresh parsley, or basil leaves ⁣

Instructions: ⁣
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f. and line a baking tray with parchment paper.⁣

Slice your zucchini in half, lengthwise, then scoop out most of the inside flesh, still leaving good solid “boats”. Reserve flesh for later use.⁣

Place the zucchinis cut side up onto the prepared baking tray, then spray with cooking oil. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste, then bake until just beginning to soften, about 10 minutes.⁣

In the meantime:⁣

Using a large skillet heat to medium high, add in your oil, add in onion and cook for 2 minutes, then add in garlic and cook 1 more minute, then add meat and brown, breaking it with a spatula as it cooks. Stir in the remaining zucchini flesh, Italian seasonings, and marinara sauce, and allow everything to simmer until sauce reduces, about 5 minutes or so.⁣

Carefully fill each zucchini halve with meat mixture, then top evenly with mozzarella.⁣

Bake, until the zucchini is tender, and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.⁣

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley or basil and enjoy! ⁣
