1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the inside seeds. To help them lay flat on the pan, you can also cut a piece off the bottom of the “boat” to create a flat surface.
3. Mix tomato sauce and nutritional yeast (if using).
4. Spread a light layer of sauce (about 1 tablespoon) inside each zucchini.
5. Top with onions, olives, and tomatoes.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until zucchini is tender (but not mushy).
7. Top with basil and serve.
