“I always seem to forget how much we enjoy these, about 100 calories per serving, Stuffed Zucchini "Boats" I have estimated both the prep and bake time. They should be ready to serve in an hour or less. Sometimes, I sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese over each boat.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the whole zucchini until tender-crisp, 10-15 minutes. Cool enough to handle and cut in half lengthwise. Cut off the stem and blossom ends, scoop out and reserve the centers, leaving 1/4" on bottom and sides.
  2. Brown, crumble and drain the sausage. Using the same pan heat the olive oil and saute the garlic, onions, zucchini, red and green peppers, Italian seasoning and optional fennel seeds. Cool slightly.
  3. Add the browned sausage and season lightly with salt and pepper., if needed. Add the beaten egg.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the scooped out zucchini halves.
  5. Bake 350 degrees, 30 minutes, until heated through and browned slightly.
