Spaghetti Zucchini Boats

Tonight we tried our zucchini boats with spaghetti sauce.  I found the spaghetti boats to be more flavorful than the cheeseburger boats.  My kids couldn’t decide which recipe they preferred.  Which recipe should you prepare?  I guess whatever floats your boat!


  • 6 small, 4 large or 2 overgrown Zucchini Squash
  • 1 small Onion, diced
  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • Daiya or Mozzarella Cheese.


  1. Put a stock pot full of water on the stove and bring to a boil.  Meanwhile, cut the ends off the zucchini and slice lengthwise. Halve the zucchini if necessary.
  2. Add the zucchini to the boiling water and cook 10 minutes or until tender.
  3. In a skillet, brown ground beef and onions.  Add spaghetti sauce and seasoning. 
  4. Remove the zucchini from the water.  When cool enough to handle, scoop the inside of the zucchinis into the ground beef mixture and stir well.
  5. Arrange the zucchini on a baking tray and fill with ground beef mixture.  Top with cheese.
  6. Bake until cheese is melted.
