BAKED SUMMER ZUCCHINI BOATS
(SERVES 4)

Ingredients
• 4 medium zucchinis
• 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning or Herbs de Provence
• Sea salt and pepper, to taste
• 1 tablespoon avocado oil
• 1 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
• 1/2 cup onion, finely diced
• 1 teaspoon minced garlic
• 2 cups marinara sauce
• 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
• 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
• cooking spray

Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a large rectangular baking pan with cooking spray.  Set aside

Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then trim off the stem ends.  Use a spoon to gently scoop out the flesh of the zucchinis.  Place zucchini halves in the prepared baking pan, cut side up.  Sprinkle the Italian seasoning, salt & pepper over the zucchini

Heat the avocado oil in a large pan over medium/high heat and add the sausage.  Cooke for 4-5 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spatula.  Add the onion and cook until the onion has softened.  Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.  Season the sausage and vegetable with salt & pepper to taste and pour the marinara sauce into the pan and bring to a simmer, cooking for about 5 minutes or so.  

Spoon the meat mixture evenly into the zucchini shells and top with the shredded cheese.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until zucchini is tender and the cheese is melted and golden brown.  Sprinkle with parsley to serve!
