With marinara sauce, ground turkey and mozzarella cheese, these healthy zucchini boats offer cheesy comfort without the guilt!

Ingredients:

4 zucchini
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon basil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
Cut each zucchini in half horizontally, then carefully scoop out the center of the zucchini, reserving for another use, leaving about 1/2-inch of zucchini on the skin.
Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground turkey, oregano, basil, salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in marinara sauce until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
Add ground turkey mixture to each zucchini. Place into oven and bake until the zucchini is tender and the cheese has melted, about 10-12 minutes.
Serve immediately.
