Our Stuffed Zucchini Boats make a great side dish to any meal, but are hearty enough to stand on their own, too. One of our readers says, "These were awesome! I made them for my mom...and she loved them!"

What You'll Need

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut the zucchini lengthwise and scoop out the centers, leaving the shells 1/2 inch thick. Finely chop the meat from the center of the zucchini.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat and saute the chopped zucchini, onion, and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is tender.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the Swiss cheese, flour, parsley, egg, salt, and pepper; mix well. Stir in the vegetable mixture.
  4. Fill the zucchini shells with the mixture and sprinkle the tops with the Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the filling is firm and golden.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These are delicious and I have made them multiple times. Even my picky husband likes them.

Yum! Love that this uses Swiss cheese!

These are very good. And attractive on the plate. After they cooled a bit, I just picked them up with my hands and ate them like pizza. Will definitely make these again soon and cannot wait to spring these on my vegetarian children.

These were awesome! I made them for my mom while she was recovering from back surgery and she loved them! She is 78 and has become quite a picky eater so I was thrilled that she enjoyed these. They are delicious and easy to make!

Sounds good
