Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 1 pound(s) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup(s) marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 cup(s) seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 1 cup(s) (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • Additional marinara or spaghetti sauce

Preparation

  1. • Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; cut a thin slice from the bottom of each with a sharp knife to allow zucchini to sit flat. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in. shells.
  2. • Place shells in an ungreased 3-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set aside.
  3. • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat; stir in the egg, marinara sauce, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup cheese.
  4. • Spoon about 1/4 cup into each shell. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Microwave 3-4 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted into filling reads 160° and zucchini are tender. Serve with additional marinara sauce.
