  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup marinara
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded provolone
  • 1/3 cup mini pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • chopped fresh basil for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  2. Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise.  Using a small spoon scoop out the seeds and a little bit of the flesh leaving about 1/4 – 1/2 inch flesh on the zucchini. Place the prepared zucchini scooped out side up on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Heat oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook until soft; approximately 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to low.  Add minced garlic, rosemary, thyme and oregano; cooking for 1 minute stirring constantly.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.  Stir in marinara, 3/4 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup provolone. Scoop the sauce/cheese mixture into the zucchini. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, top with mini pepperoni, and sliced black olives.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven for about 15 -20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve promptly.


  • Smaller zucchini cook up more tender and their skin is less tough and not bitter.
  • Choose zucchini that is firm and free of cuts and blemishes.
  • Different cooking times will produce slightly different results. 15 minutes cooking time will produce zucchini that are slightly crisp tender while 20 minutes cooking time will produce a softer more tender zucchini.
  • Use any kind of good melting cheese like mozzarella, provolone, provel or fontina.  If desired top with grated Parmesan or grated Romano.
  • If you can not find mini pepperoni substitute regular sized pepperoni chopped.
