Ingredients :

  • 1 drizzle olive oil
  • 1 extra large zucchini
  • quartered lengthwise
  • seeds scooped out
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • minced
  • 3 tablespoons dried basil
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 4 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • or to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • or to taste
  • Methods :

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Drizzle olive oil on zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until zucchini is fork-tender, 30 to 45 minutes.
  • While zucchini is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef with onion and garlic until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in dried basil, dried oregano, and garlic salt.
  • Combine tomato paste with 1 cup of water in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly. Drain fat from beef mixture if needed. Add tomato paste mixture and heat through. Turn off heat, add fresh basil leaves, and mix until well blended.
  • Remove zucchini from the oven; leave the oven on. Scoop meat mixture generously into each zucchini quarter and sprinkle each with mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
