Very good, added some spinach and ricotta cheese to the mixture. Also, let it cook for 30 minutes before throwing the cheese on top and letting it melt.

I assumed TVP is a generic term and used "no meat sausage", which I browned with green onions and musrooms. I followed someone's earlier advice and switched to a 4-cheese blend. And I couldn't find italian bread crumbs, so I put 2 slices of whole wheat bread in the blender. My family (and my son's vegetarian girlfriend) loved it. I'll be doing this again.

I've been trying to reduce the carbohydrates in my diet and this recipe really helped me on Friday night which is my family's "pizza night". The zucchini in this recipe is the "crust". First I sprinkled garlic powder on the scooped out zucchini shells. I substituted pizza sauce for the pasta sauce and I browned and crumbled italian sausage instead of using the frozen burger style crumbles. In addition, I only used half as much bread crumbs and twice as much parmesan cheese. It satisfied my pizza craving and I didn't feel like I missed my favorite food. Thanks!!
