Ingredients

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add zucchini, whole, and cook until almost soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and allow to cool until easily handled, about 10 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking pan.

  • Slice cooked zucchini lengthwise, removing the top third. Scoop out the pulp and transfer to a strainer. Pat pulp dry with a paper towel and transfer to a bowl. Add Monterey Jack cheese, cottage cheese, all but 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, butter, sour cream, garlic, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Mix to combine.

  • Spoon mixture into zucchini boats and place on the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle tops with remaining Parmesan and bread crumbs.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Turn on broiler and continue cooking until tops are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes more.

Please note that I made a major change! Instead of making boats I skipped the boiling step and diced the zucchini. I put the zucchini in the baking dish and mixed it with the other ingredients with the 1 T of parm on top. (oh and I omitted bread crumbs because I didn't have any on hand). I baked for 20 minutes broiled for 3. My family loved it and gobbled it up.

Made as written except that I reduced the cooking time (we prefer zucchini a little crisp) and this was pretty darn good. The 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs was left off of the ingredient list so be sure to make note of that when planning. It should be 1/4 cup 5 tablespoons divided. 1/4 cup goes in the filling and then the rest if to sprinkle on the top.

I believe the recipe is correct. Of the 5 tablespoons of breadcrumbs 4 of them is 1/4 cup and the other tablespoon is sprinkled on top. Anyway that's how I did it. It came out great.
