If you had told me ten years ago that I would one day love cooking (and actually be somewhat good at it) I probably would never have believed you.
But as I got more and more into healthy eating over the last several years, I’ve come to really enjoy finding and preparing new recipes!
At our house, we choose a new recipe to try each Friday night. My husband and I take turns choosing the recipe and cooking.
Our first choice was these zucchini boats featured in Oxygen magazine. Zucchini is one of my favorite veggies and they are very in season right now!
I made some small adjustments to the recipe, this makes three servings so I had to adjust it down to two.
I also left out the olives since neither my husband nor myself care for them. I didn’t add parmesan cheese because I don’t think that much cheese is necessary and I prefer to do without the fat and calories.
The recipe implies after scooping out the insides of the zucchini you just toss it, but I chopped it up and added it to the beef mixture. I see no reason to waste good zucchini!
They may not be the prettiest, but these turned out well and were delicious! I added a little more feta to Hubby’s boats since he can afford the calories and loves feta.
We both agreed, this one is a keeper!
