With summer here and gardens producing, I thought I would share with you a simple, healthy recipe. You can also substitute eggplant or spaghetti squash for the zucchini. I prepared this dish in the oven (due to the fact than I forgot to fill the propane for the grill! UGH!) It is very simple to do this on the grill as well.
1 (8oz.) can Hunt’s Tomato Sauce Basil, Garlic and Oregano
1 lb. extra lean hamburger or turkey burger
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. italian seasoning
dash of pepper
3-4 small, fresh zucchini
sliced provolone cheese
Cut zucchini length wise, scoop out seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt & pepper. Place on baking dish and bake in oven at 350 for 15 minutes. While squash is cooking, prepare the meat mixture. In a small pan, brown meat with seasoning. Then add in tomato sauce.
When zucchini is done fill with meat filling and top with a slice of cheese.
Return it back to oven on broil to melt the cheese.
Very filling and healthy.
