Just trying something new with my lovely zukes from the garden. A girl can only make so much bread!
Blue Ribbon Recipe
These zucchini boats are a creative way to serve summertime's favorite vegetable. The bacon bread crumb crunch gives the zucchini a nice flavor and texture. They have a nice cheesy buttery flavor. Super hearty, they're a nice summertime dinner.
Remove bacon and drain on paper towel. Reserve grease.
Cut zucchini in half lengthwise.
Heat on a microwave-safe plate, cut side down, for about 3-4 minutes to soften.
Using a kitchen towel to protect your hands, remove zucchini pulp using a spoon.
In reserved grease, slightly saute onions until soft and translucent.
Add pulp, and garlic to onions and cook a few more minutes.
Stir in Parmesan cheese, bacon, and ground pepper; remove from heat.
Place zucchini in the pan. Cover the bottom of each with a small amount of mozzarella.
Fill shells with the hot filling.
Melt butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Add bread crumbs.
Top each zucchini with about 1 tsp of crumbs.
Bake for about 35-45 minutes until zucchini are tender, the filling is bubbly, and bread crumbs are browned.
