Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Cook Time: 30 minutes 

Yield: 4 servings

 

Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion (Vidalia), chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Trim the ends from the zucchini and halve them lengthwise. Using a melon baller, hollow out each half leaving a wall of 1/4-inch or less on the sides and bottom. Reserve the pulp.
  3. Season the zucchini halves with salt and pepper, arrange them on the prepared baking sheet and bake until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  4. Roughly chop the reserved zucchini pulp and set aside.
  5. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute longer, then add the chopped zucchini.
  6. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and continue cooking until the zucchini is tender and the entire mixture is lightly caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Stir in the breadcrumbs and cook for 1 minute longer.
  7. Divide the zucchini-onion mixture between the hollowed “boats,” and top each with about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.
  8. Bake for an additional 8 to 10 minutes, or until the “boats” are tender when pierced with a knife and the cheese is melted and golden.
