Recipe for Meat, Tomato, and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini

Start by sauteing onion, green pepper, and garlic for a few minutes in a bit of olive oil. Then remove the veggies, add a bit more olive oil, and saute the meat until it's browned. Stir the green pepper, onion, and garlic back into the meat once it's done.

2 large zucchini or yellow squash, about 12 inches long
2 tsp. + 2 tsp. olive oil (may need more, depending on your pan)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 green pepper, finely chopped
2 T finely minced fresh garlic
1 lb. ground beef (10% fat or less)
12 oz. ground turkey (10% fat or less)
(use any combination of ground meat you'd like, but use low-fat ground meat for the South Beach Diet.)
1-2 tsp. Spike seasoning (optional but recommended)
2 C flavorful tomato-basil pasta sauce
2 cups low-fat mozzarella or other mild white cheese (I used low-fat blend of six cheeses called Italian blend.)
