Tender zucchini boats are great holders for their ample cheesy filling. Jalapeno peppers add a little kick to this unique recipe. —Mrs. Tracey Rosato, Markham, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 19, 2011

This recipe has great flavors with the basil and cheeses. I did everything as it said but used ground turkey. A friend that tried it at work also made it at home for her family and used ground meat. It was a great success. I definitely will be making it again.
