  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Combine reserved zucchini pulp, turkey, green bell pepper, sweet red pepper, onion, mushrooms, and spinach in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until turkey is no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well. Spoon mixture into the zucchini shells and place in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven uncovered until zucchini is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
