This stuffed zucchini is made with a nicely seasoned mixture of pork sausage and Parmesan cheese.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 pound pork sausage
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme, crumbled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • dash pepper


Directions for stuffed zucchini
Cook whole zucchini in boiling salted water until just tender, about 6 to 9 minutes. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise; scoop out squash, mash, and set aside. Place shells in a shallow baking dish; set aside. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, cook sausage with chopped onion; drain off excess fat; stir in mashed zucchini. Reserving 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese for topping, add remaining Parmesan cheese to the meat mixture along with remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spoon mixture into zucchini shells; sprinkle stuffed zucchini with the reserved 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Bake stuffed zucchini at 350° for 20 to 30 minutes.
Stuffed zucchini serves 4.

This recipe doesn't tell you when to add half of the ingredients it lists. Where do the saltines and eggs go? It doesn't account for any of the prep time, so it leads you to believe it will only take 40 min. Very poorly written and no feasible way to make this using those directions.
