  • Using a spoon, scoop out the seed portion and set aside in a small bowl.
  • Place the "boats" skin down into a baking pan, cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • While zucchini is baking, start browning the turkey in the olive oil in a medium sized pan.
  • Take your vegetables, including the parts of the zucchini you scooped out earlier, and dice them into small pieces using either a knife or a food processor.
  • Once meat has been cooking 5 minutes, add the veggies and seasonings. Mix well. You want the meat to crumbled into small pieces. Cook another 5 minutes, until there is all the meat has cooked.
  • Take your zucchini out of the oven, uncover and fill the boats with your veggie/meat mixture. Bake for another 15 minutes uncovered.
