In the Kitchen: Zucchini Boats

This is my favorite version!
4 zucchini cut lengthwise
6-7 extra large shrimp, chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 cup onion minced
Fresh Salsa or pico de gallo
Fresh shredded mozzarella
Pam Spray
salt and pepper

Spray a medium pan with Pam spray and add onion and garlic and saute for a few minutes.  Scoop the inside of the zucchini out to make a hollow "boat".  Take the inside "pulp" of the zucchini and chop, add to the onion mixture to saute.  Add shrimp last and cook until pink, salt and pepper as desired. Spoon the mixture into the zucchini and top with salsa and cheese.  Line the boats in a foil covered casserole dish for easy clean up.  Bake in the oven at 350* for about 25 minutes.

These are quick and healthy for a weeknight dinner.  It's a perfect light meal for summer alone or it can be served as a side dish.
