I love how healthy and flavorful this recipe sounds and I just love zucchini and broccoli together. For some strange reason, the thought of making zucchini boats stuffed with all of the other ingredients combined just made a lot of sense to me... and you can add some Monterey Jack cheese or my new favorite Cheddar Jack to give it some extra cheesy goodness. Yum!

This is a meatless casserole that would be good when you have limited time to prepare a weeknight meal or are trying to eat healthier by limiting your dietary intake of meat. Out of personal preference, I would omit the red pepper flakes. I would also use skim milk and increase the amount of Parmesan cheese since I really like a lot of cheese in my casseroles.
