Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 whole Zucchinis (washed, large)
    2/3 cup Ricotta Cheese, skim
    1/2 cup grated carrots
    1/2 cup fresh white mushrooms (chopped into small pieces)
    1.5 teaspoons Basil
    2 cloves of Garlic
    1/4 cup chopped onions
    2 tablespoons Grated Parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/8 cup hot water

    Olive oil (for the pan)

Directions

Preheat oven to 420 degrees

Clean the zucchini and cut off ends. Cut the Zucchini in half long-ways and side-ways, creating 4 pieces about equal in size.

Use a spoon to take out the seeds/centers of the zucchini (you can save these to make a soup, or compost them)

Place your zucchini boats on a lightly oiled baking pan.

In a bowl, combine all other ingredients. Mix thoroughly.

Spread mixture onto each boat, divide evenly between all 8.

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the zucchini is softened and the topping turns golden brown.

    I taste more basil than anything but they are pretty good and low calorie. I don't know exactly what I needed to add extra for taste. - 8/12/08
