Zucchini Ripieni (Stuffed Zucchini) with Marta



Today Marta and I made Zucchini Ripieni (stuffed Zucchini). A perfect way to eat up those summer zucchini. The recipe can easily be made gluten free without adding breadcrumbs.

Marta made hers with tuna and I can’t wait to try it. But I had ground turkey in the fridge waiting for me so I decided to go the meat route. Here’s a simple riff on Marta’s Zucchini Ripieni recipe. Check out our video on her page and her version of Zucchini stuffed with tuna! @martascookingclasses

ZUCCHINI BOATS

Ingredients (Serves 4-6): 

  • 3-4 long zucchini, halved 
  • 1 lb. ground turkey 
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 T Parmesan
  • 2 T breadcrumbs 
  • 1 t salt
  • Cracked pepper
  • ½ t Italian seasoning
  • Splash of white wine, optional

Directions:

  1. In a large sauté pan, heat oil. When hot, add ground turkey and use a wooden spoon to break it up. Cook at high heat. When it’s a nice golden brown and no pink remains (about 5 min), add onion, garlic, red bell pepper and tomato. Cook another couple minutes or until onion is soft. 
  2. Then, add salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Turn off heat and place pan away from heat to cool slightly. 
  3. Halve zucchini and scoop out flesh leaving ¼” from the bottom and ends. The easiest way is to do this with a teaspoon. Save the flesh- it will go in the filling. Chop large zucchini filling pieces and mix into ground turkey in the pan. No need to cook. Mix together in pan. 
  4. Now fill zucchini boats with filling making sure to place enough in so it’s piled high. Place stuffed zucchini in a greased baking tray (13x9 tray). Repeat with all zucchini. Splash the white wine in the tray if using. 
  5. Mix breadcrumbs with cheese and sprinkle on top zucchini. Drizzle a little olive oil too. It helps to crisp up.
  6. Place tray in oven and bake 30-40 minutes at 350 F or cheese is golden brown and zucchini is fork tender. Serve hot or cold!
