Coming at ya today with a brand new zucchini recipe! I personally get really sick of doing the same old thing with my garden zucchinis, aka sauteing them in a pan or making zucchini bread. So I decided to create a recipe that used zucchini as the main element of the meal instead of just as a side dish. I am constantly coming up with new ways to use zucchini and this recipe might be my new go to when it comes to summer dinners.
You’ll start by cutting the ends of the zucchinis off and then scooping out the center of each zucchini so that you are creating a little “boat”. You then take the inside “pulp” of the zucchinis and saute them in a pan with some chopped onions and garlic which then gets mixed with cooked sausage, orzo and some Parmesan cheese. After sauting your zucchini boats, you’ll stuff them with the filling and bake them. The end result is so flavorful and light but still extremely filling. Give these a try next time you need something to do with your zucchini!
Tips & Tricks:
- You can substitute the breakfast sausage for Italian sausage if you prefer.
- If you grow your own zucchini and have some overgrown zucchinis, you can use them for this recipe but reduce the amount of zucchinis according to how large your overgrown garden zucchinis are.
- Make sure to not scrape too much of the flesh out of the zucchinis, otherwise they will be not hold the filling and will fall apart.
