Marinara Zucchini Boat

When you go a long journey, what’s your ideal transportation? 

Well, if you are going to see beautiful architecture, you need to get there ASAP so airplanes are the best choice. Train? Well, if the rail is there you can, but a little limited choice especially for going to mountains. Boat? Yes, if you are good at balancing, it’s the best choice. 

Hmm, boat…isn’t it the best transportation to keep my culinary journey? A Slow cooked zucchini boat with yummy filling catches people’s eyes on a dining table, and if it tastes people’s favorite, cheese, marinara sauce with crunchy bread crumbs…

Here is an edible boat for our great culinary journey to find yummy homemade food!
