In an attempt to try and fit in some more "healthy" meals, I was looking around the Net when I came across zucchini boats. None of the ones quite fit what I wanted,so I took some stuff from each and came up with my own version. Cooked them on the Egg at 375 for about 30 minutes.

Seemd healthy enough and it packed a lot of flavor. Really enjoyed it and I could see us making this again, amybe even changing up the ingredients to match other cuisines.

    I think you could add some Italian sausage, marinara and Italian seasonings for an italian version. Some grilled corn and black beans for a Southwest Version. Just two other ideas that come to mind.
