Turkey Zucchini Boats

  • 2 medium zucchini squash
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1lb ground lean turkey
  • 1 1/2cup prepared marinara sauce
  • 2-3Tbs parmesan cheese (optional)

1) Heat over to 400 degrees F

2)  Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and ground turkey into the skillet.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 8-10mins, breaking apart with a wooden spoon or spatula while it cooks.  Add the marinara sauce.  Cook 2-3 additional minutes.

3)  Meanwhile, cut the zucchini in half lengthwise.  Use a spoon to scoop the seeds and center out of each half, leaving about 1/4 inch thick zucchini boat.

4)  Place the zucchini (cut-side up) in a 9x13 baking dish.  Spoon the turkey mixture into the four zucchini boats.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, cover and bake for 20-30 minutes until boats are heated through.
