Zucchini Boats

Zucchini season will be here before you know it. Especially if you live or spend your winters in the warmer climates like I do here in Arizona. These were fun to make a just delicious, even my main man liked them and he has extremely discriminating tastes. Try this when zucchini season hits I think you will like them too. One last thing, just bake them to el dente’ otherwise they get mushy. Hope you enjoy them.
