Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Guess what you guys? This weekend is the 47th Super Bowl. I had to do a Google search to figure that one out. It is gonna be held in New Orleans. While it is on I will not watch. I will be out skiing. I will however make more of these Stuffed Zucchini Boats to munch on.

This simple to prepare recipe would be great for game day nibbles and aprés ski snacks.

Be sure to have all kinds of toppings and a whole bunch of cheese ready. They come together in just minutes.

Let’s get back to zucchini…

You can prep your zucchini ahead of time by trimming them in half lengthwise and scooping out the seeds with a melon baller.

Also that fennel pollen salami. Yup. Fennel pollen.
