  • 4 medium-sized zucchinis 
  • 8 oz of mozzarella (cut into small cubes)
  • 3 or 4 fresh tomatoes (cut into small cubes)
  • a few basil leaves 
  • olive oil 
  • 4 spoonfuls of pesto 
  • salt and pepper to taste 

Rinse the zucchini with water, then cut them in half, longwise. Next, put the zucchini halves in a pot of boiling water (with salt) for about 3 minutes. Take them out of the boiling water and let them cool down. Once cooled, empty out a portion of the pulp with a metal spoon. Place the pulp on a cutting board and, with a fork or a knife, cut/smash the pieces together until they resemble a puree. Next, mix the pulp together with the mozzarella, tomatoes, and three spoonfuls of pesto. Add salt for flavor.

Now, take a baking pan and cover it with parchment paper. Place the zucchini boats on top of the parchment paper and then begin to fill them with the caprese stuffing. Next, cut the basil leaves and add them to the top of the stuffing. Last but not least, add a line of olive oil on top of the zucchini boats and place them in the oven (preheated to 180°c or 350°f) for 40 minutes. Take them out of the oven, and serve them to your dinner guests. They will definitely be a hit and everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
