Sometimes I find a recipe that is a real hit and will be repeated. Today I found one of those very successes! In my meal planning, I found this recipe. It looked good, but I knew that with my kids I would have to add some sort of meat to it. I have a bunch of chicken sausage in the freezer and knew it would go well in this recipe.
Now, here's the issue - one of my kids DOES NOT like zucchini. Before eating, he asked me if he had to eat all of his squash. I told him that I would like it if he did. He ate it all up and said it was "really good."
So, here's the recipe and here's what I did differently
1 tbsp sour cream
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp curry powder
1 tsp thyme
*I did not use curry powder or thyme - instead I used fresh basil and oregano. You could put whatever spices you want in it. I used about 1 pound of chicken Italian Sausage
Preheat your oven to 400 (200C).
Give the zucchini a good scrub.
Slice them in half length-ways. You can trim the ends if you like.
Spoon out the guts (leave about 1/2 an inch in) until you end up with boat like shells.
Now give the zucchini pulp a good chop, also chop a small onion and 1/2 a tomato while you’re at it.
Take the sausage out of the casings and brown it in a frying pan. When cooked all the way through, add the tomatoes, onion and chopped up zucchini guts. Cook until all ingredients are cooked down a bit. Add oregano, freshly chopped basil and sour cream (I used Greek yogurt.)
