▪️1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
▪️2 cups ricotta
▪️1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano
▪️2 cloves garlic
▪️3 medium lemons
▪️1/4 cup parsley
▪️1/4 cup olive oil
▪️1 tsp kosher salt
▪️1/2 tsp black pepper
▪️Preheat oven to 400f and set rack in middle. Cut zucchini and scoop out the interior seeds with a spoon. ▪️Season inside of zucchini with a total of 1 tsp kosher salt and a 1/2 tsp of pepper. Drizzle oil onto each one and bake the zucchini in a sheet pan for 20-25 minutes until fork tender.
▪️In a pan over medium heat saute minced garlic in a 1/4 cup of olive oil until lightly golden. Set aside when finished.
▪️In a large bowl mix the 2 cups ricotta, 1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, juice of 1 lemon, 1/4 cup parsley, and the garlic/oil mixture.
▪️Let the zucchini boats cool for a few minutes after baking then stuff with the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle a touch of breadcrumbs onto each and arrange the sliced lemons in the pan. Broil the zucchini boats for 5-7 minutes on the middle rack until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Serve with extra grated cheese and lemon wedges.
▪️Any extra ricotta stuffing is excellent as a spread on crusty Italian bread.
▪️Use medium to small zucchini. They are more tender and have more flavor than large zucchini which tend to be waterlogged.
