Recipe: Stuffed Zucchini

In our family the birthday boy (or girl) gets to choose dinner. When I asked Joshua what he wanted, I was expecting something like steak or tilapia. Instead he asked for stuffed zucchini, lots of it.


Ingredients:

2 large or 8 small zucchini or squash
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1+ cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 pound sausage
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup mozzarella or Parmesan cheese

Boil the zucchini for 5-10 minutes or until almost tender. Remove from water and cool slightly. Once they are cool enough to handle, gently cut off the top and with a spoon remove the insides leaving just a small rim.

Blend the pulp and add the eggs, cheese, bread crumbs, sausage and seasonings. If the mixture is soupy add up to half a cup more bread crumbs. Spoon into zucchini.

Place in a greased 9X13 pan and bake at 350 for 2o minutes or until tender. Top with cheese and bake five minutes more. Makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
