HOWEVER, this recipe was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's the original recipe.
Here are all the changes I made (either on purpose or because I accidentally bought the wrong thing or forgot something).
- 4 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise and middle scooped out and reserved.
3/4 lb lean ground beefWe used 1 lb organic ground chuck from a local farm.
- 1/2 cup chopped red/yellow/green peppers in any combination (We bought the prechopped pack at Publix that had all three colors of peppers.)
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 1/3 cup of water
1 Tablespoon taco seasoning(used probably 2T of organic taco seasoning)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar (used organic)
1/2 cup of mascarpone cheese(cream cheese is excellent substitute) (<-- agreed... we used organic, local cream cheese) 1/4 cup of parsley, chopped(I hate parsley. Ew.) 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese,shredded (Forgot this one! Used organic, local monterrey jack instead and it was awesome sauce...)
- 1 green onion, sliced thin
I followed the original recipe's directions as far as prep and stuffing the boats. I wish I'd made a double batch as we each ate two (two boats, not two zucchinis worth) and they were phenomenal. I shared a few bites with Baby J when I reheated them for lunch and he now chants "more tinni" whenever he hears me say the Z word. LOL! He loved them, too!
Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!!
