Zucchini Boats


1 cup water
2 cups stuffing mix
2 zucchini, medium-large, sliced in half lengthwise
cooking spray
12 precooked meatballs, cut in quarters
2 cups pasta sauce
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat, add stuffing mix, cover and remove from heat. Using a melon baller or teaspoon, scoop out most of the pul from the zucchini halves. Place in a 9x9 inch (or similar size) baking dish coated with cooking spray. Fill each zucchini half with 1/4 cup stuffing and 12 meatball quarters, and top with 1/2 cup sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle each zucchini half with 1/4 cup cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
