Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Zucchini with Turkey Sausage

1 large zucchini (about 12 inches long)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound ground turkey
2 diced tomatoes
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Zucchini with Turkey Sausage

  1. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Scoop out insides, leaving shells about 1/4 inch thick.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Sauté onion and garlic until soft. Add reserved zucchini insides, and sauté another 2 minutes.

  3. Add the ground turkey. Lightly brown the turkey, stirring only occasionally. Cook until the ground turkey is lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in tomato, basil and rosemary and cook 1 minute longer. Drain any excess fat. Remove mixture from heat and set it aside.

  4. When mixture has cooled, add cheese, egg, salt and pepper. Fill zucchini shells with mixture. Fill a baking pan with 1/4 inch of water. Place filled zucchini halves in pan and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, until golden brown. Remove zucchini from pan and serve while hot.
