A Simple and Tasty Zucchini Treat
July 29, 2013
For the past couple of weeks I have been thinking about cooking with zucchinis... So I checked out the Kraft Recipe website for Zucchini Recipes. The Stuffed Zucchini Boats caught my eye, so I decided to test them out. Let me tell you it was super easy to make and it came out great!
Stuffed Zucchini Boats
2 large zucchini (1 lb.), parboiled
¾ cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided
1 small tomato, finely chopped
10 buttery crackers, finely crushed
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
How to parboil zucchinis
Bring 2 qt. unsalted water to boil in large saucepan. Add zucchini; cook 6 to 8 min. or until fork-tender. Drain.
PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Cut zucchini lengthwise in half; scoop out centers onto cutting board, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. Place shells in 9-inch square baking dish; set aside.
CHOP zucchini pulp; place in medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup of the cheese, the tomatoes, cracker crumbs and basil; mix lightly. Spoon evenly into zucchini shells; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
BAKE 15 min. or until heated through.
Since I'm still on vacation mode and don't really feel like cooking something too complicated, I paired the Stuffed Zucchini Boats with something that I knew my kids were going to eat and that was quick. I just grilled up some hot dogs...and I was right!
This recipe is something that I will be making again, and I can really see making it when having a party at the house! I know it would be a big hit.
Don't forget you can stay on top of the great recipes Kraft and the other Kraft Tastemakers are making by following Kraft Foods on Pinterest and Facebook.
