A quick and tasty zucchini beef recipe


3 medium zucchini

1 pound lean ground beef

1/2 small yellow onion chopped

2 cloves garlic chopped

8 ounces tomato sauce

1 cup low fat mozzarella

1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin


Wash zucchini with a soft bristle brush. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice zucchini lengthwise, then remove the seeds and part of the center flesh, creating a place for the meat mixture. Chop the onion and garlic. Place onion, garlic, ground beef, chili powder and cumin in a skillet on medium heat. Cook beef until the temperature reaches 160 degrees, then drain any excess fat. Add tomato sauce and cook until warm. Remove beef mixture from heat and spoon even amounts of the beef mixture into each zucchini half. Place filled zucchini halves in a glass baking dish and top with cheese. Cook zucchini boats for 25-30 minutes or until zucchini has softened.
