Zucchini Boats

Zucchini Bowl

Don made an amazing dish tonight and he called them Zucchini Boats.

  • One large zucchini, halved & cored
  • Chopped bell pepper, green, red & yellow (we get them really cheap at the local market)
  • Chopped onion
  • Chopped zucchini middle
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 Italian sausage links
  • 1/4 cup Spaghetti sauce
  • Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated

Season empty “boat” and bake at 350 degrees (why doesn’t my keyboard have that little degree symbol?) for about 10-12 minutes.

Brown crumbled Italian sausage in skillet in a little olive oil until done. Drain excess oil.

Add chopped veggies to sausage and sauté.

Add 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce to mixture.

Fill each “boat” with veggie/sausage mixture, top with grated cheeses and bake until cheese is melted and golden brown.

Serve this wonderful meal in a boat, hot.

Serves two.

Next time, Don says he will experiment with Turkey Italian sausage.  This was so good, I hesitate to let him change it, but turkey sausage would be less fat, even though most of the fat was drained off.

Row, row, row your boat!
