Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 LB Ground Italian Sausage
  • ½ Onion Diced
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp dried Italian Seasoning
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Pepper
  • 1 can Crushed Tomatoes 15 oz.
  • ¾ cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • Fresh Parsley chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise and trim off the ends. Then carefully scoop out the seeds of the zucchinis with a spoon.
  • Place the zucchinis in a 9X13 baking pan with the skins on the bottom of the pan. Drizzle the olive oil over the zucchinis. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the zucchini is soft.

  • Then add in the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.

  • Then spoon the meat mixture into the zucchini shells and top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for an additional 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
