 Ingredients List

  • 2 zucchini (4 green)
  • ¼ pound turkey sausage (casing removed) (1 red)
  • ¼ pound ground turkey (1 red)
  • ½ green pepper (1/2 green)
  • ½ onion (1/2 green)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 blue)
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Optional toppings: basil and paprika


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Slice zucchini evenly in half. Scoop out the insides with a spoon, leaving a thin layer of the "meat" for structure. Add the scooped out "meat" into a bowl and set aside for later
Place the zucchini boats on a foil lined baking sheet, season with salt and pepper, and bake for 10 minutes
Meanwhile, prepare your filling
In a large skillet over medium high heat, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil, your ground turkey, and your turkey sausage (casing removed)
Season with salt and pepper
Break apart with your spoon and brown (about 5 minutes)
When the meat is brown, remove to a plate and set aside
In the same pan, add 2 more teaspoons of olive oil and your onion, green pepper, and garlic
Season with salt and pepper
Cook until veggies have softened (about 3 minutes)
Add the turkey back in with the veggies along with the zucchini meat you set aside earlier, tomato paste, oregano, and Italian seasoning. Stir until the mixture is thoroughly combined - season to taste with salt and pepper
Turn off the heat and add most of your cheese - set some aside to sprinkle on top of the stuffed zucchini boats - stir until totally combined
Divide the filling into four sections (it is easiest to just section it up in your pan)
Stuff each zucchini boat with the filling - pressing it down if it is too heaping
Sprinkle the remaining cheese over each stuffed zucchini, and bake for 10 minutes
Remove from the oven and serve! Optional toppings include sliced basil and paprika
