We have three Zucchini plants, just three but right now we have Zukes coming out our ears! Goodness! Talk about prolific producers. I’m picking three to six of them every day. I have many ways and recipes to use all this squash but I wanted to come up with a recipe for a main dish so on went my thinking cap and the end result were these spicy, luscious, cheesy full of Italian Sausage zucchini “boats.” I had an 11 inch long zucchini that was about 10 inches in diameter. I simply sliced in in half, scooped out the squash leaving a 1/2 inch shell. I chopped up the squash, mixed it with the other ingredients and we dined like royalty! By the way, I thought I’d show you a photo of how I develop a recipe. It starts with a Steno pad, an idea and a pen to add things in and to cross out what I changed. This is by no means the finished recipe but it is how I started. 🙂
Here’s what we’ll need to get started.
