Ingredients

  • 6 medium zucchini
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup salad croutons, coarsely crushed
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Cut each zucchini lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell; chop pulp.
In a large skillet, cook turkey, onion, celery, garlic and seasonings over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink, breaking up turkey into crumbles. Stir in croutons, 1/2 cup cheese and zucchini pulp. Spoon into zucchini shells.
Transfer to two ungreased 13x9-in. baking dishes; add 1/4 in. water. Bake, covered, 30-35 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.
