Stuffed Zucchini with Ham and Cheese

This is one of my favorite snacks or side dishes. It is incredibly easy to make and is reminiscent of this yummy zucchini pizza that I find myself eating at least once a week. It starts off simple enough, with a roasted zucchini. Then you stuff that zucchini with ham and cheese and bake it until everything is brown and crispy. Serve it up on it’s own or with either marinara or a spicy tomato sauce for a delicious treat.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Scoop out the seeded flash of the zucchini and set aside. Place the zucchini face up on a small baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for ten minutes until they just start to soften.
  3. Meanwhile in a small bowl mix together the ham and cheese. You can also chop up and add the zucchini flesh if you want. Season with any herbs or spices you choose.
  4. Take the zucchini out of the oven and fill each zucchini with 1/4 of the ham and cheese mixture. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the cheese begins to bubble and brown. Serve with marinara sauce or your favorite salsa.
