  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash the zucchini.
  3. Cook all four zucchinis in boiling salted water until tender. This usually takes about 7 to 9 minutes.

  5. Remove the squash, mash, and set aside.
  6. Place shells in a baking dish, and set aside.
  7. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage with the chopped onion, and drain off excess fat. While doing this, stir in mashed zucchini.
  8. Save two tablespoons of Parmesan cheese for topping, add the remaining Parmesan cheese to the meat mixture along with the leftover ingredients.
  9. Mix very well. Spoon the mixture into zucchini shells. Lightly cover the stuffed zucchini with the leftover two tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
  10. Bake stuffed zucchini for 25 to 30 minutes in the oven.
  11. Remove, and enjoy!

    I really liked this recipe, but made some substitutions. I was using a huge zucchini from my uncle's garden, so I only needed one. I sliced it in half and cooked it in the oven for about 30 minutes. I didn't have saltines, so I used bread crumbs. I didn't use the squash I removed because it was mostly big seeds. I took the sausage out of the casing to cook it and actually used 1 pound of sausage. This was enough to fill both halves.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation
