    loof's Note:

    This is another recipe on a newspaper clipping my mom and I found when cleaning out one of her kitchen closets. These make a great side dish, or light meal served up with a green salad.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 2-4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut a small sliver from the bottom of each zucchini so it will lie flat without rolling over. Cut a larger sliver from the top to expose the insides of the zucchini. Use a spoon to carefully hollow out the zucchini, being careful not to break all the way through the skin.
    2. 2
      Coarsely chop the zucchini insides. Mince the garlic.
    3. 3
      In a nonstick skillet, brown the sausage. Drain well.
    4. 4
      Mix the chopped zucchini, sausage, and garlic. Stir in the diced bread and moisten with the chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Divide the stuffing mixture among the 4 hollowed-out zucchini. Place them in a shallow microwave-safe baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover with plastic wrap.
    6. 6
      Microwave 4-5 minutes, until zucchini is tender. Let stand 2-3 minutes before serving.

      This was a nice good change of pace from what we normally eat. I think I might have liked a bit more sausage in it. I did use garlic croutons for the day old bread.

      Although Ii pretty much followed the recipe, I did make one small substitution ~ lemon pepper for the usual S&P, & we were treated to a very nice side dish! Certainly worth making again! Thanks for sharing it with us! [Made & reviewed just for the 'halibut!']

      We certainly enjoyed having something different and healthy in this recipe. I added a Greek herb blend as I was cooking the sausage and I'm glad I did as the flavour would otherwise be a bit on the bland side for our taste. The sausage and zucchini flavours certainly work well together though. I also cooked mine in the oven for around 20 minutes. Thanks for a lovely, healthy recipe!
