Zucchini Pizza Boats

With marinara sauce, ground turkey and mozzarella cheese, these healthy zucchini boats offer cheesy comfort without the guilt!

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Cut each zucchini in half horizontally, then carefully scoop out the center of the zucchini, reserving for another use, leaving about 1/2-inch of zucchini on the skin.
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground turkey, oregano, basil, salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the turkey as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in marinara sauce until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add ground turkey mixture to each zucchini and sprinkle with mozzarella. Place into oven and bake until the zucchini is tender and the cheese has melted, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
