Okay, I’ll admit it. I originally pinned this recipe from Thyme for Cooking for stuffed zucchini because it looked pretty. But after I made it – YUM! This is definitely a winning recipe. The really great thing about this recipe is that you can customize it to your family’s tastes. Add some pepperonis and you have more of a pizza flavor. Some ricotta cheese on top would be delicious too, giving it more of a lasagna taste. You could try it with chicken instead of beef or leave out the meat completely for a hearty vegetarian meal. The original recipe uses quinoa instead of couscous, which would be delicious too.
Oh, and yeah…they look really pretty!
I made about two boats per person in this case, but it really depends on the size of your squash. Instead of summer squash, you could also use zucchini. (That is, if you haven’t used all you zucchini to make these fudgy zucchini brownies.) Depending on the size of your boats, you might need to make more or less of the filling – just adjust the ingredients a bit if necessary, and don’t worry if you make too much – the filling is good on its own too!
Mmmmm…take a bite! Here’s the printable recipe.
