Zucchini Tomato Boats

Zucchini Tomato Boats

I was tired of typical lunches. Since COVID-19 has insisted I work from home more, I needed something new that was easy and quick to make, tasted good, was low in carbs, and would keep me satisfied until dinner. This fits the bill. And! It smells amazing as it cooks!
