Makes 6 servings

 

Prep time: 25 min

Cooking time: 45 min

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

2

large zucchinis, washed

2 tbsp

olive oil

1

medium onion, peeled and diced

1

green bell pepper, washed, trimmed and finely chopped

4 cloves

garlic, peeled and minced

1 lb

ground beef, low fat

¾ lb

ground turkey, low fat

1 tsp

dried thyme

 

salt, to taste

 

fresh ground pepper, to taste

1 cup

cooked long grain rice

1 cup

diced Fontina cheese

2 cups

chunky Italian tomato pasta sauce, jarred

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly coat a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cut zucchinis into 2-inch thick rounds, discarding the ends. Using a spoon hollow out the centre of each zucchini round, leaving ¼-inch of flesh to form a zucchini cup. Arrange in baking dish and set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Sauté the onions and peppers for 4 to 5 minutes, or until just soft. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Place the onion mixture in a bowl.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Crumble in ground beef and ground turkey, season with thyme, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until the meat is cooked through and well browned. Pour off any extra fat in the pan. Add onion mixture and cooked rice; stir to incorporate. Remove from heat and allow to cool briefly.
  5. Stir the diced cheese into the cooled meat mixture and spoon the mixture into the zucchini cups, pressing down with the back of the spoon until the filling forms a mound over the top.
  6. Spoon the tomato sauce around and over the top of the zucchini rounds. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the zucchini is slightly soft when pierced with a fork. Serve hot.
