Roasted Zucchini Boats

-3 average sized zucchini, cut in half (those ones at the grocery that are about an inch or so in diameter and maybe 5 or 6 inches long...I would call those average)
-1/4 lb ground beef
-1/2 C onion
-1 red pepper, diced
-3 tsp (or more to taste) of dill
-1.5 tsp parsley
-pinch or so of garlic

First, hollow out the zucchini halves a bit.  I did this with a spoon but you may need a knife depending on your spoon quality.  Chop the hollowed out bits and reserve in a bowl.

Sautee the ground beef with the onions, red peppers, zucchini, and half of the spices.  You may need to add a little oil if your beef is really low fat and won't produce much grease, in which case you can add about a half TB of butter or desired oil.

Cook until beef is done and onions are translucent. Line boats up in a rectangular glass baking dish and carefully fill with cooked filling.  Top with remaining seasonings.

Add about 1/4 C water to the dish, cover, and bake in a 350F degree oven for about 30 minutes.

You can switch up the seasonings as desired to make these taco flavored or whatever you might prefer. If you are not on any restrictive diet or similar, you can also top these with just a little feta cheese on top when they come out of the oven.

Happy crafting!
