How to Make Rockabilly Housewife's Stuffed Zucchini Boats


  • 1Pre-heat oven to 325. Prepare zucchini by halving down the middle, then scooping out the flesh to leave a shell. (If the zukes are large, cut in half again to make two pieces - see photo). Chop zucchini flesh coarsely and set aside. Salt and pepper shells and drain on paper towels.
  • 2In a cast iron (or other heavy) pan, heat olive oil on Medium heat and cook onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute, then add Italian sausage. When sausage is nearly browned, add chopped zucchini and cook until liquid is released and reduced, about 5 more minutes.
  • 3Add cooking wine, tomatoes and paste, and seasonings, and cook down until thick, about 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste, then add Parmesan Cheese and mix to combine.
  • 4Pat zucchini shells dry with paper towels, then stuff with sausage mixture. Slice cheese into strips to fit top of zucchini boats, then bake for 30 minutes.
