Zucchini Boats are great! You can stuff them any way you like. We have stuffed them so many different ways but this one is a favorite... with this recipe we have also added chopped kalamata olives, diced hot ham, sun-dried tomatoes and feta. It depends what we have in at the time. Add in any combination of your favorites! I blanch the zucchini shells for 2-3 mins if they are large.
