Every day, I hear from at least one person that their kitchen is overflowing with zucchini.  It seems everyone’s crops are producing lots and lots of zucchini.  I recently found myself with the same problem. After making zoodles, zucchini fries, and a big ole block of zucchini cheese, I still had a few left over.  That’s when this Prosciutto Wrapped “Cheese” Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe was created.

Frankly, before I went all paleo and everything, I used to put cheese on just about everything.  I mean, I am part French after all.  That’s why I was so happy when I saw Hayley of I Eat Real Food‘s recipe for Zucchini Cheese in Paleo Magazine.  With a few tweaks, I was able to make it into a fantastic cheese substitute. It’s great melted over burgers, too!

These Prosciutto Wrapped “Cheese” Stuffed Zucchini Boats are bubbly and “cheesy”.  They bring together the flavors of ham and cheese, in a healthier version.  And, they’re completely AIP approved! Enjoy!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen me post all the wonderful dishes I cook in my Instant Pot. I use it practically every day, sometimes two or three times a day.  If you’ve been considering getting one, do it.  I have no idea how I lived without for so long.  I used to watch my grandmother cook in hers.  All I knew was that she was using the pot that hissed, spit, and made a lot of noise.  Little did I know then how brilliant she was.  Now that I have my Instant Pot, I know exactly how smart she was!
