So. Darn. Good.
Classic meat meets cheese dish. Stuffed in a healthy exterior.
Let's get cookin'
Oven Temp - 400
Prep Time - 20 minutes
Cook Time - 10 minutes
Total Time - 30 minutes
4 medium zucchini (or in my case, one giant zucchini)
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup marinara sauce
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Cut zucchini in half the long way. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each to make the zucchini sit flat. Scoop out pulp.
Cover the shells and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until you can cut in easily with a knife. Drain fluid that gathers in the shell.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Remove from the heat and stir in marinara sauce, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup cheese.
Spoon about 1/4 cup into each shell.
Bake in oven at 400 for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
|Each half is almost 10 inches|
I later heard that some people carve out zucchinis like this ^. I like the look of that so I think I'll try it next time.
