Tonight’s dinner was a smashing success!  What makes our relationship so special is our willingness to try new recipes, and more importantly, cooking together.  Even with a broken wing, we make an amazing team and compliment each other so well.  We made sausage stuffed zucchini tonight and it was amazing! Here is how we did it:

1 lb Italian sausage

2 large zucchinis

2 tablespoons yellow raisins

4 tablespoons of pecans

1/4 cup of onions

Panko bread crumbs

First: Sauté some onions in a pan with a little bit of olive oil.  In another pan warm some pecans over low-med heat.  Once your onions are somewhat soft, toss in the sausage, season with thyme, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper, and cook it through.

Second:  While the sausage is cooking, slice two zucchinis in half and using a spoon scoop them out and keep the meat. Also, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Next:  Once the sausage is cooked through add the pecans, 2 tablespoons of yellow raisins, and zucchini meat and cook for about 5 minutes.

Now scoop the sausage mix into the zucchini and heap it up.  Sprinkle panko break crumbs over the top.  Put your creation in the oven for 25 minutes.
