This recipe turns a plain zucchini into a culinary masterpiece!
  • 1 zucchini about 12 inches long, or 6 medium ones
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 3 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • ¾ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Scoop out insides, leaving shells about ¼ inch thick. Reserve about half of the insides.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat, and sauté onion and garlic until soft. Add reserved zucchini insides, and cook another 2 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Fry turkey until fully cooked (drain any fat), then stir in the onion mixture. Stir in tomatoes, basil and rosemary and cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. When mixture has cooled, add cheese, egg, salt and pepper.
