White beans, tomatoes, and basil is one of my favorite combinations so when I got the idea of stuffing that into zucchini and topping everything with melted cheese, I couldn't wait to get in the kitchen. It's kind of like a white bean Parmesan but conveniently stuffed into a delicious roasted zucchini. The fiber packed white beans make it nice and filling and I prefer the diced tomatoes to a traditional marinara sauce. If you like things spicy, add some red pepper flakes to the mixture before stuffing the zucchini.

I liked this recipe but hollowing out the zucchini boats was a bit of a challenge. I think next time I will add some ricotta.
