Fresh basil is plentiful in the Summer months and pairs so nicely with zucchini, another hot weather crop. I found a tasty recipe that combines the two and these Creamy Zucchini Boats are my new fave. I found the recipe in Cooking Light, but modified it a little, using fat free ricotta and grated carrots. It's savory, warm, soft and delicious. Perfect for an appetizer for your Summer BBQs.
To see the recipe just read more.
