Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

ink inside out-Jason Wood-Food&Drink-Stuffed Sausage Zucchini-October 2015

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.
