I was craving the flavor of pizza one day, but I didn’t have any pizza dough (or the ingredients to make pizza dough). So, I improvised, and I loved the results! I’m quite sure these will show up on the menu again in the future, and I like the fact that they can be customized to your personal taste!
1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a walled baking sheet with tin foil (for easy cleanup).
2. Slice zucchini lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop the flesh out of the zucchini, leaving a small amount lining the skin. Give the scooped flesh a coarse chop, and set aside in a bowl.
3. Add onion, green pepper, pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, and 1/4 cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese to the zucchini flesh and mix.
4. Place zucchini boats into the lined baking pan and scoop the mixture evenly into each of the wells. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the top of the boats, and place pepperoni on top.
5. Bake for 30 minutes or until zucchini boats are tender—the thicker the flesh, the longer the baking time.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
