4 large tomatoes

1/2 cup fresh basil

2 tea oregano

2 tea onion powder

Brown ground beef / sausage. Rinse and drain. 

Wash zucchini and cut length wise. Spoon out the insides of zucchini. Crush garlic. Chop onion, tomatoes, basil and the insides from the zucchini.

Mist boats with a little olive oil and put on the grill with zucchini inside down for about 4 minutes. Take off the grill and wait for the filling to be done.

In a large frying pan, begin to sauté garlic and onion in a little olive oil.  After about 2 minutes add tomatoes, zucchini, spices and nutritional yeast. After another 2 minutes add ground beef and basil, stir until warm. At this point do a taste test just because if all smells so good!

Fill the zucchini boats and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Place back on the grill for about another 4 minutes. Now enjoy!
