Meatball Zucchini Boats RecipeTips & Tricks on how to make the perfect Meatball Zucchini Boats:

  • I used store bough pesto sauce to cut time on this recipe and make it really easy, you can also use homemade
  • Same for the Alfredo sauce, I used store-bought, but you can you homemade or any sauce that you like. Marinara or vodka sauce work really well in this recipe
  • Use fresh zucchini that are not wilted so they can hold their shape well
  • I used a cookie scoop to scoop out the flesh of the zucchini. It makes it easier, but you can use any spoon, just be careful not to break the zucchini
  • Other delicious fillings or toppings are fresh basil, marinara sauce, more cheese, and chopped jalapeños
