Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini about 1¾ pounds

Pierogi Filling:

Garnish

  • dollop sour cream
  • dill *fresh is best

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with non- stick cooking spray.
  • Prepare mashed potatoes, as per package directions. Cool.  NOTE * use a low-fat milk and margarine to reduce calories
  • Add remaining filling ingredients.
  • Wash and cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop the seeds and centre out of each zucchini half, leaving at least ¼ inch thick zucchini boat.
  • Place the zucchini in the baking dish cut-side up.
  • Spoon the perogy filling mixture into the zucchini boats. Press the mixture down into the zucchini using the back of the spoon.
  • Cover the baking dish with foil. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until  soft enough that fork can easily go into zucchini, but is still firm.

Garnish:

  • If desired, add a dollop of sour cream, sprinkle with dill and serve.

Notes

*NOTE: I used reduced fat cheese and sour cream to cut calories and fat in this recipe
*NOTE:  You can also use up your leftover mashed potatoes!
