Garden Fresh Zucchini Boats


This Delicious Zucchini Boat we made with Summer Squash is a easy and delightful meat all in itself! I have seen Zucchini fixed many ways and I have seen this version with several types of meats in it. We wanted to see how it tasted with just all vegetables! It was delicious!

This is a wonderful and inexpensive meal! Garden food is inexpensive at the  groceries and Farmers Markets in the summer months. This should be available in the freshest form during the summer months! Take advantage of this delicious vegetable and save money on your grocery bills!

These can be found at your local grocer and produce stands all over the area when they are fresh! Many grocery stores carry them year round. Even with them costing a little more in the winter months, they are still a good meal and low cost compared to many other foods.
