Quinoa Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Have you ever looked at a recipe and thought, “That looks good. I’m going to make that!” That’s exactly what happened when I came across the Black Bean & Quinoa Stuffed Zucchini from Yummy Healthy Easy. I knew this would be a great way to incorporate a Cucina & Amore Quinoa Meal. It makes cooking so much faster and convenient. The quinoa is already cooked and the sauce takes care of all the intended spices in the recipe.
