pork-sausage-stuffed-zucchini

Ingredients

1 1/2 12-oz Package of Papa George’s Reduced Fat Pork Sausage Roll (Regular or Hot)
4 zucchinis
1/4 cup rice, rinsed and drained
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

2. Cut off the top of the zucchini and scoop out the center leaving at least a good 1/2 inch border all around. Mix what was scooped out with sausage, garlic, rice (rinsed and drained), tomato paste (1 spoon) and the mixture of swiss and mozzarella cheeses. Stuff zucchini with sausage mixture and place in 9×13 inch baking pan lightly brushed with olive oil. Precooking of Papa George’s pork sausage is not necessary because it is reduced fat. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes on low heat. Dilute the remaining spoon of tomato paste in water, and pour sauce over zucchini. Cover pan with foil.

3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cover with mozzarella cheese (optional). Serve with a good old fashioned garlic bread.

Makes 4 servings.
