Depending on the size of the zucchinis, you can cut them in half to make extra boats!
*You can also make this vegetarian if you 86 the sausage*

Ingredients

2
zucchini, large
1
red onion, sliced into rings
4-6
sausage links (i use hot)
2
tomatoes
1
red pepper
1
yellow pepper
1
yellow squash
3
garlic cloves, pressed or diced
garlic croutons

SEASONINGS:

2 Tbsp
onion powder
1/2 tsp
dry mustard
1 tsp
crushed red pepper
2 Tbsp
seasoning salt
1 tsp
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut the zucchinis down the middle (the long way) and scoop out about 2/3 of the meat. This should create the "boat" so that future ingredients will be cradled in the zucchini. Put all parts of the zucchini aside.
2
Cook the sausage until 3/4 of the way done and then remove from heat into a large mixing bowl.
3
Combine the sausage, red pepper, yellow pepper, yellow squash and tomatoes with the dry ingredients.
4
Take the zucchini that you scooped out of the "boat" and mix with the garlic. (Keep this seperate from the sausage.)
5
Place some croutons into the shell and then scoop some of the sausage mix on top of the croutons.
6
Then put some of the zucchini and garlic mix on top of that, followed with some more croutons.
7
The last thing to go on would be the slices of onion. Using a sheet of foil, spray it with non-stick vegetable spray and wrap it around the zucchini.
8
Set on the grill, not on direct flame or heat.
Cook until tender.
