This is the best recipe. You can change it a little to suit your tastes. I use ground beef, a fresh tomato, a tiny bit of instant rice, fresh garlic, etc. My zuc is always cooked, but I dont leave alot of the 'meat' on the skins. This truly is so good, I have shared it with many!!

I loved this recipe!!!It ROCKS!!!!

I made these but added a can of spaghetti sauce and some leftover rice. After stuffing the "boats", I place them in a microwave dish, loosely covered, and cooked on high for 8 min. Delicious!

A vegetarian Italian sausage could be used instead. I bet even just some sauteed mushrooms, peppers, onions, garlic would make a good stuffing too--maybe add some breadcrumbs to them. Even though I don't eat meat, I love reading the interesting sounding recipes and most can be modified for vegetarians or vegans.

If you par boil the Zucchini before baking, it will be more tender.

Made this last night...Here are a few tips. I used zucchini 6" to 8" long. 1 Johnsonville Italian sausage for each whole zucchini. Sauted 1 small diced onion along with 2 chopped garlic cloves and Italian seasoning, then added the sasuage. Also added 4oz can of thick tomato sauce with the drained diced tomatoes. Used 8 oz package of cheese, added 6 ounces of cheese to mixture in step 3 and remaining 2 oz in step 5. Looked and tasted good...4 Stars

love it! A great way to get my grandchildren to eat our fresh from the garden zucchini!!

It looks delicious! but I will attempt to make it with the Mexican squash(light green) with grown pork and sun dryed tomatoes and the 3 kinds of Mexican chesses already in packaged with pinch of oregano, wish me luck!!!!!

sounds good. I just got regular ground meat mix and going to make it with them. leave them cook until ground meat done and then cut them into bite size pieces for an appetizer, then have lazagna with the rest of the raw meat. this main recipe looks delcious and i can't wait to try it.
