Ground Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats (Gluten-Free)


Makes 2 servings

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 tsp cloves, minced
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup reserved zucchini 'meat'
  • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large skillet, brown turkey over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, cut off the end of each zucchini. Then cut each one in half lengthwise. Scoop out the center, leaving a 1/4" border. Chop 1/2 cup of the zucchini meat and set aside.

Once turkey is cooked, add onion, green pepper, 1/2 cup chopped zucchini meat and tomato sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes. Split turkey mixture evenly among the four zucchini boats and place in prepared baking dish.

Spray aluminum foil with cooking spray and cover zucchini boats. Cook for 30 minutes. During the last 5 minutes, remove cover and sprinkle cheese on top. Once cheese is melted, remove from oven and serve immediately.
