Bruschetta-Turkey Zucchini Boats
It’s hard to imagine bruschetta without the grilled, crispy-chewy under layer of bread. But this appetizer fave doesn’t have to be loaded with carbs and extra calories to be a hit before dinner (or even for dinner). A scooped out half-zucchini makes a healthier base, and with mixed-in lean turkey and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese, these better-for-you boats are filled with the protein you need to sail through the evening feeling fully satisfied.
