Asian Cuisine Meets Healthy Italian

As I rushed to catch the 1pm bus on the way from the city to my comfy, little home in Jersey, I thought to myself “what should I make for dinner?”  Then it dawned on me, Pizza-stuffed Zucchini. I had originally gotten the idea from Dashing Dish, Lauren’s Latest, and Big Girls Small Kitchen. Although I loved each and every recipe, I knew that I had left-over tomato sauce from last night’s Spaghetti Squash Meal, and so I took in all the ideas, but simplified it in a way that would be easy for me to utilize what I had.

Since I knew I would be fasting tomorrow, because of Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement for the Jewish people, I knew I had to pair up this delicious entree with filling sides. I chose rice, cooked in a little bit of soy sauce and honey (homemade teriyaki), and steamed broccoli.



To make this delicious Pizza-Stuffed Zucchini you will need the following:

1 medium sized zucchini

1/3 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

tomato paste mixed with hot water, add some pepper, salt, and garlic powder and you have yourself a sauce



Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Take out a cooking pan and put tin foil on it, add a little olive oil to the pan and set it aside.

Cut the zucchini into half and then into another half.

Scoop the inside of the zucchini so it looks like a boat.

Put the tomato sauce.

Add the cheese.

(You can also add other vegetables like olives, onions, peppers, etc. to your liking)

Stick the zucchini in the oven for 30 minutes.
