I love a meal that comes together with only a few ingredients! This Pesto Lasagna Zucchini Boat recipe only calls for five ingredients. And, it’s a healthier alternative to traditional lasagna.
Pesto is a fantastic short cut ingredient for packing tons of Italian flavor into a dish with little effort. For this recipe, pesto and ricotta cheese are mixed together to make the flavorful filling in the zucchini boats.
There’s no pasta in this dish. Instead, the flavor of lasagna is stuffed inside hollowed out zucchini halves, making it a great option for low carb and gluten free dieters. Or, it can be a great option for anybody who’s trying to pack more veggies into their diet.
Serving Size: 2 zucchini boats
4 medium zucchini (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup pesto
2/3 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
