Zucchini boats

Put these on a well oiled BBQ grille and cook these doing the indirect grilling method. I am sorry I cannot tell you how long to cook these….you’ll have to judge this for your self…..the zucchini should be soft.

If you have more filling than you need….DON’T THROW IT AWAY…freeze it for soup or something……

You can also freeze these once they are filled. Which is a grate time saver.
