Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package Jimmy Dean® Premium Italian Regular Roll Sausage
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1 yellow, orange or red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise; scoop out centers leaving 1/4-inch thick shell. Place into lightly greased, 13x9-inch baking dish, cut side up.
  3. Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Stir frequently.
  4. Add peppers, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, basil and oregano; cook and stir until vegetables are tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add tomatoes and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Fill zucchini with meat mixture; top with shredded cheese. Bake 30 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and cheese is melted.


Notes



• I like my zucchini tender crisp, which is how it will turn out with this preparation. If you like a softer zucchini, boil for 1 to 2 minutes after scooping out the center, then continue with the recipe as written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as pizza! That is what my husband said!! Do use shredded mozzarella, dried oregano, and fresh basil. I also added the zucchini( minus seeds) in the mixture.Jimmy Dean's premium sausage in a tube is excellent, I would not swap that out!
