Zucchini Boats

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Boats

Ready to sail away but you don't have a boat and can't access the 'new normal' without wi-fi? Then maybe settle for these tasty zucchini boats instead. We know it's not the same, but this is something you will feel good about eating. If you want to make it low carb, simply substitute the quinoa for riced cauliflower or broccoli.
