Zucchini Boats

Servings: Makes 8 Boats

Ingredients

Directions:

  1. Preheat your Oven to 350
  2. Thoroughly Wash & Dry your Zucchini
  3.  Chop of the ends of the Zucchini & slice in 1/2 lengthwise so you have 8 Boats
  4. Scoop out the flesh of the Zucchini so you have a nice boat vessel (discard the excess)
  5. Line a baking sheet with foil & put all 8 boats on it and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder
  6. Bake Zucchini Boats by themselves for 15 minutes (While the Zucchini is baking, get your filling ready!)
  7.  Saute 1/2 chopped onion in 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat.
  8. Season the onions with 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt, & 1/4 tsp pepper
  9. Cook until translucent and then add in your sausage and cook until fully browned
  10. Remove Pan from Heat & Add 1 cup of Tomato Sauce and 1/2 c shredded cheese until combine completely
  11.  By now, your zucchini boats should be cooked & your mixture still warm.  Scoop 1/8 of the mixture into each zucchini boat and distribute the second 1/2 c of shredded cheese on top
  12. Switch your oven to Broil on High & Put the Zucchini Boats in the Oven on Broil for 4-5 minutes until the cheese gets nice & bubbly!
  13. Enjoy!!
    Tip : To Make Tex-Mex Style, Replace the Marinara Sauce with 1 cup of Salsa, and replace the sausage with ground beef cooked in taco seasoning!
