Stuffed Zucchini Boats with Meat

Stuffed zucchini halves.

Our garden is so overgrown, it’s quite embarrassing.

It looks as though it hasn’t been maintained for months, and it has.  But, underneath the crowded jungle of green leaves, I recently discovered two massive zucchinis. For whatever reason, every summer we grow JUMBO zucchinis—the kind that could win an award at a local farmer’s contest.

In fact, last year our largest zucchini measured 23 inches.


We love zucchini prepared any way: fried, sautéed, shredded, roasted. But, our favorite dish celebrating zucchini?

Zucchini boats stuffed with meat.

Believe it or not, it’s a tasty dish that’s quite filling. You’ll be surprised at how much flavor the zucchini substitute adds and how you won’t miss the pasta.

We eat this dish year round, and you should too.

Try it for yourself.  The appeal factor alone will get your picky eaters to raise an eyebrow and try the “boat”.
