This recipe was created in partnership with Jimmy Dean brand for the Family Table program.
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.
Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 8 to minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Stir frequently.
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 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Fill zucchini with meat mixture; top with shredded cheese. Bake minutes or until thoroughly cooked and cheese is melted.
• 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.
