How to Make Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Step-by-Step

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a rolling boil.
    Wash and trim stem ends from zucchini and slice lengthwise.
    Place zucchini into the boiling water and par-boil for 2-3 minutes.(Do not overcook). Remove from water and place on cutting board or work surface.
  2. Scoop flesh and seeds from zucchini halves using a melon baller or spoon, starting about 1/2 inch from the ends and leaving about 1/2 inch shell, creating a boat.
    Chop and reserve flesh and seeds.
  3. In a medium bowl; mix the flesh, seeds, sausage, ground beef, bread crumbs, garlic and parmesan cheese together, mixing well.(I just use my hands)!
  4. Stuff each squash with meat mixture.
    Pour 1/4 of the spaghetti sauce into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
    Place zucchini halves onto the spaghetti sauce and pour the remaining sauce over the tops of zucchini.
  5. Cover with foil and bake in a 350º oven for 45 minutes or until sausage and beef are cooked through. Remove foil and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese.
    Return to oven until cheese is melted. Serve.
