This recipe needs a lot of adjustments. In order for the zucchini boats not to be undercooked, (ie. crunchy) they should be baking in the oven while the stuffing is prepared. I half-cooked the sausage, if nothing else just to get it a little eaiser to mix with the rest of the ingredients. I used a hot italian sausage and it really added to the flavor. Decrease the amount of breadcrumbs by 1/2 I also reccomend adding roasted red peppers (chopped), fresh basil and sundried tomatoes (chopped) to the stuffing along with crushed red pepper flakes (about 1 tablespoon). Also make sure you use a good quality tomato sauce and lots of extra cheese. There is so much potential with this recipe you just have to make it your own.


Need to state that the meat be browned prior to adding and need to give suggested size of zuchini to use.


Awesome! This was met with mixed reviews from Sonny. Hubby and I couldn't get enough. This is very filling though. Made for dinner lastnight, this morning Sonny said "that was good dinner lastnight" We will make this again. Followed recipe exactly, browning sausage 1st. We used 3 zucchini about 5 inches in diameter and 9 inches long, filled our casserole dish completely. Thanks so much for this recipe.
