Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe

Stuffed Zucchini is a great way to use up summer zucchini from the garden and perfect for a Meatless Monday meal. There are many different ways you can stuff zucchini. You can stuff with crab, mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese, ground meat or the way I chose to do it for this Meatless Monday meal – with spinach and stuffing. The mix I used is from Trader Joes which contains no HFCS or you can make your own.

2 tablespoons olive oil
