7:33 Outro

4 medium zucchini (about 2 pounds)
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 pound lean ground turkey
3 garlic cloves minced
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
1/2 cup reserved zucchini meat from the center of zucchini
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 cup strained tomatoes
1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese shredded

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and pre-heat oven to 350.

Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise and use a spoon (or melon baller) to scoop out the center, leaving about a 1/4-inch shell all around (see video for demonstration). Be sure to save the zucchini you scooped out.

Place zucchini in a pot of boiling water for one minute. Carefully remove and set aside to cool.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat before adding ground turkey. Break the meat into smaller pieces using a wooden spoon or spatula and cook until lightly browned.

Add garlic, onion, green peppers, zucchini meat, Italian seasoning, strained tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the veggies are tender and the flavors have come together.

Place zucchini halves in a baking dish. Fill each zucchini boat with about 1/2 cup filling. Top each turkey-stuffed zucchini boat with a tablespoon of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese has melted and everything has heated. Enjoy!
