4 zucchini boats
Tender baked zucchini filled with a mix of shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese that's topped with savory ground beef mixed with your favorite red sauce.
‣ 2 zucchini, the wider the better ‣ 1/2 tablespoon olive oil ‣ 1/2 cup ricotta ‣ 1 egg ‣ 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley, plus more for garnish (optional) ‣ 1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided ‣ 1/4 cup shredded parmesan ‣ 1 cup ground beef, about 8 oz ‣ 1 cup red sauce, store bought or homemade
Cut the zucchinis in half and hollow out the center, leaving about 1/4 inch of flesh around the sides. You want to keep a think enough of the edge so that the zucchinis keep their shape while baking. If desired, brush the zucchini with olive oil for some extra flavor.
Mix the cheese and herb filing together, then generously scoop it into the center of the zucchinis. Be careful not to overfill!
Cook the ground meat of your choice, combine it with the red sauce, and then drizzle it over the zucchini boats. Once done, bake!
