Rated 4.8/5 based on 5 customer reviews

Ingredients (9)

  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 small zucchini, each about 6–7 in. long
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • ½ pound ground turkey
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes with juice
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese

Steps (5)

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare a baking sheet by coating with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Step 2
    Halve zucchini lengthwise, then using a melon baller or small spoon, remove the center of each half — being careful not to remove too much or cut too close to the edge — to create a long channel. Dice the removed zucchini meat and set aside.
  • Step 3
    Place the zucchini halves hollowed-out side down on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Step 4
    Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add the zucchini meat, onion, ground turkey and salt. Cook, stirring often to break up the turkey, until most of the liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes, then add the tomatoes and dressing, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Step 5
    Carefully flip over the baked zucchini halves and spoon heaping piles of the filling into the hollowed-out channels. Evenly sprinkle mozzarella on top of each half and bake for another 20 minutes; serve immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy lunch This is a great healthy recipe! I added this recipe into my collection. Quick and eat to prep for the week. I added some jalapenos for a little kick. YUM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zucchini Boats My zucchini were larger than the ones in the recipe so I call them "boats". I used salsa and rotel tomatoes in my mix along with sharp cheddar chees and parmesan cheese. I use ground chuck instead of turkey. It's delicious!
