Ingredients

  • 4

    medium zucchini

  • 1

    pound ground turkey or beef

  • 1/2

    cup chopped onion

  • 3/4

    cup marinara or spaghetti sauce

  • 1

    egg, beaten

  • 1/4

    cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon pepper

  • 1

    cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided

  • Additional marinara or spaghetti sauce

Directions

Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; cut a thin slice from the bottom of each with a sharp knife to allow zucchini to sit flat. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in. shells. Place shells in an ungreased 3-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat; stir in the marinara sauce, egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup cheese. Spoon about 1/4 cup into each shell. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Microwave 3-4 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted into filling reads 160° and zucchini are tender. Serve with additional marinara sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
