Lasagna Stuffed Zucchini

Melted mozzarella oozes over a thick tomato-meat sauce stuffed inside of a hollowed out zucchini “boat”. The flavors bake together mimicking a lighter lasagna-inspired dinner that highlights all of zucchini’s best attributes.

  • Lasagna Stuffed Zucchini
  • Ingredients
    • 3 medium zucchini, washed
    • 1 lb. ground turkey/beef blend
    • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes with oregano, garlic, and basil, drained with 2 Tbsp. liquid reserved
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
    • ½ tsp. garlic powder
    • Ground black pepper, to taste

    Directions
    1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown turkey/beef blend with onion and garlic. Add diced tomatoes and 2 Tbsp. reserved liquid. Let simmer for 15-20 minutes. 1. Meanwhile, slice the zucchinis in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop out inside of the zucchini, leaving ¼-½ inch border on the edges. Place zucchini halves inside a baking dish that has been lined with tin-foil and lightly coated with cooking spray. Chop zucchini meat and add to the skillet. 1. After 15-20 minutes, stir in grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and pepper. Let simmer an additional five minutes. 1. Evenly divide filling among zucchini halves. Top with mozzarella cheese. 1. Bake in a preheated oven at 375⁰F until zucchini is easily pierced with a fork, about 35 minutes.
