Stuffed Zucchini

You don't need a whole lot of fancy ingredients to make a delectable, fresh tasting, from-the-garden treat like Stuffed Zucchini!

For this recipe, choose some fresh, firm zucchini, and adjust the fillings to your liking.

I used:

3 medium sized zucchini, sliced lengthwise
4 fresh Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 - 2 lb. Italian sausage, removed from casing & cooked
1/4 cup - 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
1 big handful chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 - 1 cup Seasoned Italian bread crumbs
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
minced garlic to taste

Scoop out the pulp from the zucchini with a spoon. Roughly chop & place in a large mixing bowl. Combine with the all other ingredients and enough extra virgin olive oil to moisten the entire mixture. Add salt, pepper, garlic to your liking. Fill each zucchini half with the mixture and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 275 degrees for 15 minutes.

I did a lot of mixing & adding by eye, so these measurements are approximate. Experiment to find out what works best for you. Add some hot pepper, or sauteed onions and garlic. You simply cannot go wrong when you're working with such yummy, simple ingredients! And THAT is my kind of recipe!
