My husband Marc has mentioned in the past how his dad would make zucchini boats a lot when he was growing up. So when he brought it up again this week, I took the hint that he was craving it. I would never have thought of making it, so I love how he has become my muse. Of course I had to put my own spin on it though. I whipped up these amazing Italian zucchini boats for a low carb dinner and I was so happy I did! Let me tell you, I didn’t even miss the carbs and you all know that I love them so.
The Italian zucchini boats baked for just 20 minutes to soften the zucchini and melt the cheese. I couldn’t wait to dive in when they came out! Oh wow, I fell in love. It was one of my favorite combinations of sausage, pepper and onion, but without the usual carb overload. Marc went nuts for them too, so mission accomplished! It was so fun making one of his favorite childhood dishes with my own little spin. Hope you all love it too! xoxo
