This is a great start to an amazing recipe! We had some gigantic zucchini when we got home from vacation, and needed to find SOMETHING to do with them! I browned and drained one pound of Italian sausage and a small onion, added the cooking creme and half a can of petite diced tomatoes, stuffed one giant zucchini (after I removed the seeds and microwaved the halves for four minutes), topped it all with mozzarella, and baked it for 35 minutes at 350. It fed our family of five and we all LOVED it!
I had this for 4th of july BBQ and it was great, all my quests were very impressed, I did not tell them how easy it was
Very flavorful. If you want to do as a main dish, I added half a pound of cook ground turkey that i seasoned with a little garlic and salt and pepper. When the turkey was done, I mixed the tomato and basil cooking cream in with the ground turkey and filled the boats. and finished the recipe as its listed. Will make it again. My husband LOVED it!!
I was looking for something different to grill, side dish/veggie wise. This was perfect! Easy too. I couldn't find the tomato basil flavored creme so I used italian herb and cheese, it was still good. I do think I used too much of the creme cheese (I didn't pay attention to the qty in directions)... next time I won't add so much. But, I will be making this again! Looks fancy too, would be good for company.
Made this as a main meal for my husband and myself. LOVED it. Very filling. Next time I think I will add either cook ground beef, sausage or turkey. But personally I would eat this as is and skip the meat - with a meal like this I could become a vegetarian. lol
