I wish I could describe in words how delicious this was! The zucchini perfectly complimented the filling. And the filling was bursting with flavor. It was super easy and I can't wait to make it again! I think I will keep it in mind for those times when I serve pizza to our extended family. Some of them don't eat a lot, if any, flour. And this would be perfect!
1 small to medium zucchini
1 turkey sausage link, casing removed
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 strips each red and green pepper, diced
Pizza Sauce, just enough to make the meat mixture stick together
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Pour olive oil into a saute' pan and add the chopped shallot and garlic. Saute' for several minutes then add the sausage, stir to crumble. When the sausage is almost done add the green and red peppers and saute' till sausage is completely cooked and veggies are tender. Toss with pizza sauce.
Slice zucchini in half lengthwise and hollow out the flesh till you have a small rind left. Stuff the zucchini with the meat filling and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 350° until zucchini is tender and cheese is melted and beginning to brown. aaahh, yummy!!
