  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Drizzle some olive oil over the outside and inside of the prepared raw zucchini and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and reduce oven to 350 degree.

    In a medium skillet, over medium heat, cook the beef, sausage, onion and garlic until no pink remains in meat. Remove from heat and drain. Add meat to a medium bowl.
    Stir in beaten eggs, tomato, parsley, Bread crumbs, Romano cheese, salt, garlic salt, pepper, olives, Italian seasoning and spaghetti sauce seasoning.
