Zucchini Boats – Sometime you get that desire for pizza that nothing else can satisfy. When you are dieting the desire for pizza can derail your weight loss. Well, zucchini Boats are the low-calorie alternative to pizza that when made correctly may just satiate that craving.
In this episode of POV Italian Cooking I make Weight Watch Zucchini Boats. These zucchini boats are made with a medium size zucchini that hs been de-seeded to make a “boat”. The boat is then filled with ground turkey that has been browned, cherry tomatoes and a homemade red sauce.
When dieting I recommend making your own red sauce because it’s nearly impossible to find red sauce in a jar that doesn’t have added sugar. I like a simple red sauce made from canned san marzano tomatoes which I puree in my food processor. Use just enough olive oil to sweat some onions, then add garlic for several minutes before pouring in the tomato puree. Let this simmer for 30 minutes then you may need to add a bit of tomato paste, if needed. This homemade sauce is super low in points.
This eight Watcher recipe that stays true to the Italian spice palette yet keeps points low. Definitely give this recipe a try!
