3-4 large zucchini, cored
1/2 one large onion, chopped finely
1/2 cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped finely
1 lb of ground beef, lean
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
one jar of your favorite tomato sauce
spices – seasoned salt, 21 spice mix from trader joes (italian spice would work well too), garlic powder, chili powder
First I took the mushrooms and onions in some EVOO and cooked them until they were soft. I also cooked the ground beef until it was totally brown. I added the veggies to the meat and about 1/3 of the tomato sauce, the spices, and the cottage cheese and mixed together. I stuffed the zucchini with the mixture then topped the zucchini with the rest of the mixture. I added about 1/3 more of the tomato sauce and sprinkled some mixed italian cheese as well. It came out delicious!!
