Is zucchini overtaking your life? Try this quick, healthy recipe that’s loaded with Italian sausage and fresh summer flavors.
Stuffed Zucchini is the 30-minute cure to your summer-squash blues.
Is summer squash overtaking your life? Are you considering dropping 16 pounds of zucchini on your neighbor’s doorstep, ringing the doorbell, then running away? Is your freezer completely stuffed with excess loaves of zucchini bread? It’s time for Stuffed Zucchini to be a part of your life.
Stuffed Zucchini is loaded (literally) with the bright flavors of late summer: fresh basil, zippy red onion, and sweet bell pepper. Ground Italian turkey sausage adds spice and makes Stuffed Zucchini a hearty, healthy main dish. Thanks to all of the fab flavors from our other fresh summer ingredients, you won’t notice this healthy switcheroo one bit.
We could stop here, but why would we when there are fresh basil breadcrumbs to involve? We’re transforming a few slices of whole-wheat bread, Pecorino-Romano cheese, basil leaves, and a touch of melted butter into a golden, toasty breadcrumb “crust” atop each zucchini. Should you desire to lick any of these cheesy, buttery breadcrumbs directly from your plate, I support you.
Turn the zucchini blues into a squash celebration with Stuffed Zucchini. In 30 minutes or less, you will have a healthy, affordable summer party on a plate!
