Stuffed Zucchini

With Summer here and gardens are producing, I thought I would share with you a Simple, Healthy recipe. You can also substitute Eggplant or Spaghetti Squash for the Zucchini.  I prepared this dish in the oven (due to the fact than I forgot to fill the propane for the grill! UGH!) It is very simple to do this on the grill as well.

Lark's Country Heart


Stuffed Zucchini

1 (8oz.) Can Hunt's Basil, Garlic, Oregano Style Tomato Sauce
1 lb. Extra lean Hamburger or Turkey Burger
1/2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder 
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
dash of pepper
Sea Salt
Olive Oil
3-4 small Fresh Zucchini
 Sliced Provolone Cheese

Cut Zucchini length wise, scoop out seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt & pepper. Place on baking dish and bake in oven @ 350 for 15 minutes. While squash is cooking prepare the meat mixture. In a small pan brown meat with seasoning. Then add in tomato sauce.
When zucchini is done fill with meat filling and top with a slice of cheese.
Return it back to oven on Broil to melt the cheese.
Very filling and healthy.

Country Kisses,
Lark
