These yummy zucchini boats have all the flavor of pizza, plus a hearty dose of nutrition.
And they won’t make you feel like a ginormous ball of fluff from all those carbs.
(PS – All of my recipes are what I call ‘throw-together’. You won’t see much measuring. This makes them super easy!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut zucchini (1 per person) in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides using a spoon. Leave about a 1/4 inch around the edges
Brush insides of zucchini with olive oil and bake for 10 minutes
Meanwhile, add scooped out zucchini and a half jar of spaghetti sauce to a skillet.
Sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian seasoning and simmer for five minutes
Add a good handful of shredded mozzarella and stir to melt cheese
Spoon mixture into the zucchini shells and top with halved slices of pepperoni, more shredded mozzarella, and parmesan cheese
Bake for 20-25 minutes
Trying to get on a healthier track??
Hey! I’m Julie.
I’m the mother of three, ages 28, 21, and 6, and Gima (grandmom) to a five-year-old grandson.
Over my 28 years of #momming I have been ALL the moms (single, married, stay-at-home, working, young, ‘mature’, struggling, stable, etc) and have faced every healthy eating challenge there is.
Now the founder of Well Fed Families, and author of the ‘Easy, Healthy Meals for the Tired-Ass Mom’ cookbook, I bring my real-life, family-raising experience to the table to help other overwhelmed mamas get on a healthier track.
So take a load off and stay a while. I’m super glad you’re here. <3
