Zucchini Boats

My mom and I went to the Farmer's Market and got all fresh vegetables and basil!  We made zucchini boats for dinner.

First I steamed the zucchini for 5-10 min, cut them in half lengthwise, and scooped out the insides.

I fried up some chicken, tomatoes, red pepper, and onion, with fresh basil.  (You could use grilled chicken for a healthier option).  

Then I filled the zucchini with the mixture and topped it with Parmesan cheese, and baked them in the oven on 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.  

They were delicious!  I've seen recipes that use rice and mozzarella in the mixture as well.  

What do you do with the zucchini insides?  Baby food!
