How to Make Zucchini Boats


  1. Wash zucchinis and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out insides, thus making a "boat".
  2. Coarsely chop zucchini insides, onion, and bell pepper in the food processor. Chop tomatoes and mix together with rest of vegetables.
  3. Load your "boats" with vegetable mixture and place in a baking dish that has been slightly drizzled with a small amount of olive oil. Sprinkle the boats with your favorite herbs.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes. Place cheese on the zucchini boats during the last 5 minutes of baking time.
