    Whipped these up today to have for supper tonight! I looked for a recipe like this here and couldn't find one, so I made one. A nice way to mix up the zucchini bounty we all get in the summer. Presents well. Hope you enjoy!

      Meat filling:
    4. 4
      Trim ends of zucchini and slice lengthwise.
    5. 5
      Scoop out flesh leaving 1/2" walls to resemble a "boat".
    6. 6
      In a large deep pan steam zucchini cut side down for about 5 minute (I had to turn mine half way through to cook both ends) Set aside.
    7. 7
      In a deep dish skillet brown meat and drain.
    8. 8
      Add onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and mushrooms. Sauté with meat until onion is soft and clear.
    9. 9
      Add tomato sauce, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes uncovered.

    16. 16
      Prepare a BBQ bake sheet (I used an old cookie sheet) with foil making the foil hang about 1 1/2-2" to make "walls" on your pan.
    17. 17
      Pre-heat grill to medium heat.
    18. 18
      Spoon meat mixture into zucchini boats evenly pushing gently along the center to make a slight "well" in the mixture.

      Sprinkle all with cheese.
    21. 21

      Let cook an addition 10-15 minutes (lid down) or until meat mix is bubbling and cheese is melted and starting to brown.
    25. 25
      Serve.
