SLOW COOKER STUFFED ZUCCHINI

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchini, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, cored
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 pound bulk sweet Italian sausage
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Scoop out flesh from the zucchini halves, leaving shells about 1/8 inch thick. (Zucchini flesh may be saved for another use.)
  2. Place tomatoes, 1/4 cup olive oil, salt, black pepper, garlic, basil leaves, Italian herb seasoning, and sugar into a food processor and pulse until blended, about 1 minute. Set mixture aside.
  3. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sausage to skillet and cook, stirring often, until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato mixture and heat until simmering; stir in Parmesan cheese.
  4. Place hollowed-out zucchini shells into the bottom of a large slow cooker, trimming them to fit if necessary. Spoon the sausage mixture into the shells, cover the cooker, and cook on High until tender, about 6 hours. Remove cover and spread a layer of mozzarella cheese over each stuffed zucchini. Cover and cook on High until cheese has melted, about 10 more minutes.

 I like zucchini but normally cook it with yellow squash.  I'd try this though.  It sounds really good!

Yummy!  I love zucchini, although no one else in my house eats it.
