STUFFED ZUCCHINI BOATS:

  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup large fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Trim the ends of zucchini. Cut in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. Finely chop pulp.
  • In a skillet, cook beef, zucchini pulp, onion, mushrooms and peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat. add 1/2 cup cheese, ketchup, salt and pepper; mix well. Spoon into the zucchini shells. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Yield: 4 servings.

    When scooping out the pulp for Zucchini Boats, a teaspoon or tablespoon is about the right size. Use your food processor or blender to finely chop the pulp quickly.
