Lasagna Zucchini Boats


Hello Zucchini lovers!

I can’t believe there are so many of us in the world! I started to love this squashy veggie in my adolescent years, when no one was loving it! I experienced so many healthy choices since then, but now.. I like to find new ways to cook my food. So,I found an interesting recipe mixing two of my favorite food, and I promise it is more delicious than it looks like. So what about lasagna and zucchini together? And yet better they come in a boat!

Let’s get started!



– 4 medium to large sized zucchini| or 8 small sized (Like I used) halved lengthwise, scoop out inside with a spoon.
– 8 oz lean ground beef.
– 4 table spoons olive oil.
– 1 egg. (leave it if you have allergy)
– 1 small onion, finely chopped.
– 2 garlic cloves, minced.
– chopped parsley for (ricotta cheese & meat & on top decoration)
– 5 oz (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese.
– 8.6 oz (1 1/4 cup) part skim ricotta cheese.
– 2 oz (12 cup) finely shredded Parmesan cheese
– salt & pepper.
– 2 oz crushed tomato or lasagna sauce.
  • Scoop out zucchini, leave  1/4 inch to create your boats. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl stir ricotta cheese, egg, parsley with salt and pepper. Stir in 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  • Heat 2 tsp of the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Crumble the beef , add salt and pepper and cook, stir it from time to time, don’t let the beef to stick together, until it is brown. Add parsley ,Then remove from heat.
  • To assemble boats, brush zucchini olive oil and place in baking pan (you may use 2 pans, I kinda crammed the remain). Divide ricotta cheese mixture among zucchini boats. Divide sauce among zucchini on top of cheese and add the beef.
  • spread the remaining Cheddar cheese on top.
  • Cover baking dishes with foil and place in oven 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle tops with remaining mozzarella, return to oven and bake until cheese has melted and zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle tops with with parsley, and anything you would love.
