I did pack those zucchinis with a ton of veggies, I couldn’t resist!
Summer garden veggies make amazing meals! Fresh veggies are so versatile and there is not much better than veggies straight out of the garden or farmers market! One of my most popular recipes to date is Zucchini Tomato Eggplant Bake plus Video Thus we have these stuffed zucchini boats filled with garden fresh veggies and the cheesy goodness that makes lasagna.
What I really love about this recipe, besides it tastes fantastic, is the versatility of ingredients! Feel free to use this as a base and adjust the veggies according to your families favorites. I also love using this as a fridge cleaner. Take all those veggies that need to be used and make them into these veggie boats.
My family has an array of eating preferences. Gluten-free, vegan, carnivore, they are driving me crazy! Me and the hubs, easy easy, healthy and delicious! This zucchini boat recipe makes everyone happy! I can sub vegan cheeses for my vegans! My boys actually love this as is but they snack on it a lot and add in cooked ground chicken and turkey. Such a versatile recipe.
Tips to make Zucchini Stuffed Boats:
- Use fresh zucchini and be sure to wash zucchini well.
- Feel free to swap out veggies to what your family loves.
- To keep this meal vegan, I have used tofu ricotta and vegan mozzarella with excellent results.
- These healthy zucchini boats can keep in the fridge, well covered for about 3 days.

How to Make Veggie Lasagna Zucchini Boats

- In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg. dried parsley, salt, and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
- Use a 9 by 11 rectangular dish. Add about 1 cup of the marinara sauce and place the culled zucchini halves skin side down in the pan.
- Top the zucchini halves with the cheese mixture and distribute 1 cup of Marinara Sauce.
- Distribute the veggies between the zucchini. Top with fresh mozzarella.
