  • 6 Ear(s) corn
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 med chopped onion
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

    Prepare the raw corn by holding it upright and slicing off the kernels. Heat the oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add onion and cook for five minutes, add zucchini, corn and pepper. Cook an additional 10 minutes until zucchini is soft. Place zucchini in a baking dish.
  • Step 3
    Fill boats with zucchini corn mixture, put it in the baking dish along with the boats, or save it for another meal. Top the zucchini corn boats with the shredded cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.
