Zucchini Boats with Marinara Sauce


Serves: 4

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Comments

These are a simple and fun way to enjoy zucchini. Works best with larger zucchini. Look for low sodium marinara. You can also cut the zucchini lengthwise if desired.

Ingredients

3 zucchini(s), large

1 cup marinara sauce, already prepared, jar or deli

1 cup cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk

1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

Preparation

Bring large pot of water to a boil. Cut zucchini into 2 inch pieces. Carefully carve out the center part from each piece of zucchini without cutting all the way through to the bottom. Place the zucchini in boiling water and cook for about 2 minutes until just soft. Remove from the water and drain well. Pat zucchini dry with paper towels and place in a baking dish. Fill each piece with marinara sauce and top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 to 10 minutes until cheese is bubbling. Remove from the oven and serve.
