My Zucchini Shells

Patsy Weaver


My husband loves these! So easy to prepared too! I made this last 4th of July party at my house. They were a success. This makes a lot so if you want to half it you can. Good for church parties too. If you have really long zucchini you can half or third it - your choice. I like the smaller ones the best.

pinch tips: How to Cut Avocado (Like a Pro)





30 Min


15 Min


1 lb
bulk sausage, hot or mild
1 small
onion, chopped
4 Tbsp
philadelphia cooking creme, santa fe blend (or your choice)
zucchini, about 1 to 2 inches in diameter and about 4 to 6 inches long, wash and trim
1/4 tsp
1/4 tsp
black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Spoon out 2/3's of the inside of the zucchini leaving a good edge all around. Place shells in a large flat pan (13 X 9) or bowl (or use 2 pans or bowls) with cut side up.

Brown sausage, onion and zucchini in a skillet and drain. Add salt and pepper. Next stir in the philadelphia santa fe cooking creme and stir well.

Spoon into the zucchini shells. If you have any leftover sausage mixture just spread in bowl around the zucchini or save for crackers to eat later. Bake about 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees uncovered or microwave about 10 minutes. These really don't have to be cooked if you like raw zucchini and don't want to heat up the oven. Good both ways.
