Stuffed Zucchini

This was really tasty.
The stuffing mixture is delish, and it’s pretty dang healthy too!
  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 can (15 oz.) crushed tomatoes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with no stick spray.
Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds. Chop and reserve about 3/4 of the seeds for the stuffing. Salt and pepper the seeded zucchini. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, sausage, chopped onion, bread crumbs, egg, crushed tomatoes and the reserved zucchini seeds. Place the meat mixture equally into all of the zucchini halves; mixture should be piled up over the top. Place the filled zucchini halves into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven for approximately 45-55 minutes.
