These stuffed zucchini boats are filled with savory ground beef, topped with a heap of mozzarella cheese, and baked until bubbly.
Servings 4 servings
Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut zucchini lengthwise and scoop out the center with a spoon to make a little boat. Set aside.
Place the ground beef into a frying pan over medium heat. Brown the ground beef until fully cooked, making sure to break apart any large chunks.
Add in the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, onion, and garlic. Stir until fully incorporated and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Stir in 1 cup of marinara sauce and remove from heat.
Fill each zucchini boat with the meat mixture. Line the boats up in a deep baking dish.
Top them with the remaining marinara sauce and sprinkle the tops with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25 minutes.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
