  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices or cooking ground turkey or beef
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1 TBSP. italian seasoning
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Use a baking sheet (can be lined if you want an easier cleanup)
  • Cut each zucchini into halves through the length.Pat insides dry with paper towels (cut portion). Align on prepared baking sheet. In a bowl, stir together olive oil and garlic then brush lightly over tops of zucchini. Sprinkle with seasoning and salt and pepper to taste then brush a slightly heaping 1 Tbsp marinara sauce over each zucchini, leaving a small rim near edges bare. Sprinkle tops evenly with mozzarella cheese then with parmesan cheese. Top with meat of choice. Bake in preheated oven 12 - 18 minutes (bake time will vary depending on how thick your zucchini are and how tender you want them).
