Low-Carb Stuffed Zucchini “Boats”


Loaded Zucchini Boats

My neighbor Tim  has an amazing garden! I love that he tends it and I get to reap some of the rewards! He cannot possibly eat all the zucchini he harvests so he’s always calling asking if I would take some off his hands… and I have NEVER said no! I cannot wait until his garden starts yielding zucchini this year but in the meantime there is already plenty of it showing up in produce departments and some farmers markets too!

Last night  I decided to clean out the fridge … that means I used up lots of little leftovers… and I made my Zucchini Boats with Mozzarella and Tomatoes. They are simple to make and you can use all sorts of stuff you find in the fridge to stuff it! Heck you don’t even HAVE to use Mozzarella or Tomatoes! You can substitute Yellow Summer Squash for the zucchini! It’s a very forgiving and versatile recipe so have fun with it!

After writing her a lengthy e-mail that somehow got eaten by the Verizon network I promised her that I would write an article this week to answer all of her questions!
