  • 2 medium zucchini

  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat bread crumbs (if you make your own, make them coarsely ground)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Scoop out the middle with a spoon and set aside.
  4. Place zucchini halves on the baking sheet. Drizzle with ¼ tablespoon olive oil. Put in the oven for 8 minutes, or just before they are tender.
  5. In a frying pan, heat ¼ tablespoon olive oil. Once warm, add spinach and the scooped out zucchini. Saute until the spinach is wilted.
  6. Once the spinach is wilted, add pine nuts, raisins, and breadcrumbs. Cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from heat.
