Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Zucchini Boats

3 zucchinis
1 cup Basil Leaves
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup (4 oz.) fat free ricotta cheese
1 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp hot water
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Recipe Directions for Creamy Zucchini Boats

  1. Preheat the oven to 450? F.

  2. Wash each zucchini thoroughly. Cut off the ends and then cut each one in half. Then cut each half lengthwise so you have 12 pieces of zucchini total.

  3. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds and compost them, or use them to make soup broth. Place the zucchini boats on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.

  4. Now you're ready to make the filling. Chop the basil and the parsley and place it in a bowl with the garlic, grated carrot, ricotta, Parmesan, water, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix it thoroughly.

  5. Now fill each boat with the creamy mixture, pressing it down with the back of a spoon.

  6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the zucchini is tender.

  7. Serve warm and enjoy.
