Zucchini Boats

One of Torry’s patients sent him home with zucchini fresh out of their garden!!! I was so happy when he walked in the door with them because I had been eyeing this idea for dinner from the Proud Italian Cook… I worked with what I had around the kitchen and it turned out really tasty!!

Preheat oven to 350F…

Start by cutting the zucchini in half lengthwise … they suggest trimming a little off of the bottom side so it’s sits in the pan better…

Using a spoon, hollow out the middle slightly by removing the seeds…

Spread 1 to 2 teaspoons of pizza sauce across the tops…

Layer turkey pepperoni, tomato, and Weight Watchers string cheese…. (these are the toppings I had on hand, there are numerous possibilities!)

***Duh, I left out some important details…. before adding the cheese, bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Then add the cheese and put under the broiler for about a minute until the cheese melts***

They were REALLY good!!! Another great way to get it some veggies! …. and only 2 Points Plus…

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
