Rated 4.8889/5 based on 9 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 Hubby LOVED it! This was definitely a yummy addition to our house. I did have to make a few adjusments to appease the masses. My husband doesnt like zucchini so i used yellow squash for him instead but it totally still worked out and he loved it.
