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

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.
