Ingredients


2 tbsp Basil, fresh (chopped)
1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (sliced)
1/4 cup Kalamata olives (chopped)
1/2 cup Marinara pasta sauce (or pizza sauce)
1/4 medium Red onion (sliced)
4 medium Zucchini
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast (optional)

Instructions


  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.
