Zucchini Pizza Boats

Insane healthy kick is still going strong. So after 2 classes of hot yoga this week I needed to keep going on my health kick. A nice vitamin packed lunch was necessary, so I decided to go to Trader Joe’s and make an organic and vegetarian meal! It took all of 30 minutes…SO EASY! Here’s what you’ll need:

2 medium sized zucchinis
1 cup of organic red pasta sauce
¼ cup of shredded cheese
½ cup of diced up mushrooms
Salt
Basil
Parsley

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the zucchini horizontally.

Then cut horizontal lines in the zucchini about halfway cut through the whole zucchini. I did about 4 lines per zucchini half.

Then take a spoon (teaspoon worked better for me) and scoop out the insides of the zucchini while still leaving about ¼ on the sides and bottom making the boat shape.

Take a cookie sheet and spray it with nonstick spray (not sure if this is necessary but I did it anyway!). Then line up your zucchini.

Fill the insides with the red pasta sauce about ½- ¾ of the way.

Then line with as many mushrooms as you want.

Then sprinkle some cheese on top and some salt, parsley, and basil- I honestly just sprinkled a little on each one.

Put in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes.

Enjoy hot! These were yummy, easy, and totally veggie!! I added a little bit of Greek yogurt on the side to dip these in and it was such a great combination of flavors. What’s easy about these is you can add in whatever meats or veggies you want. The zucchini doesn’t even taste like a vegetable! It honestly just takes on the flavors you add to it. I cannot wait to eat leftovers tomorrow. Yum.
