Food Friday - Zucchini Boats

3 medium zucchini squash
1 1/2 C soft bread crumbs (I used crushed Ritz crackers)
1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten well
2 green onions, minced (I used yellow)
1 T minced parsley
1/2 t salt (omit if you use the Ritz because they already have salt)
Grate Parmesan cheese

  • Wash zucchini
  • Cut off ends but don't peel
  • Cook in boiling, salted water for 7-10 minutes
  • Remove from water and cut zucchini in half - lengthwise
  • Carefully remove pulp with a spoon, leaving shell intact
  • Mash zucchini pulp with a fork and mix with all the other measured ingredients
  • Spoon mixture into zucchini shells and place in a baking dish
  • Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and paprika
  • Bake, uncovered for 30 minutes
This is another recipe from the Lion House. We had it tonight and it was a crowd pleaser (well, Phil and I really enjoyed it ... Eden wasn't enjoying anything tonight).
