DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add sausage and onion and cook, breaking the sausage into small pieces, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Add quinoa and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in tomatoes and marjoram.
  • Meanwhile, cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Cut a thin slice off the bottoms so each half sits flat. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a 3/4 inch shell. Discard the pulp. Place the zucchini in a microwave-safe dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and microwave on high until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Uncover.
  • Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler to high.
  • Transfer zucchini to a broiler safe pan or pans. Fill with the quinoa mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Broil on the upper rack until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
