Ingredients

  • 4 zucchini stem removed and halved lengthwise
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 2 oz nitrate free deli roast beef shaved
  • 4 round slices of provolone cheese cut into 4 strips each
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • Remove a bit of the insides of the zucchini and discard (or keep for a smoothie or juice). Brush the zucchini with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat an additional tablespoon of oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add in the bell peppers and onions along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute until golden brown and set aside.
  • Layer the roast beef and sauteed vegetables onto the zucchini and top with two strips of the cheese.
  • Turn on the broiler of the oven. Broil for 30-60 seconds until the cheese turns a golden brown.
  • Serve immediately.
