Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time25 min


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 6 ounces Italian sausage, hot or sweet
  • 6 small button mushrooms, diced
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
  • 1 slice of gluten free bread, diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C

  3. Use a spoon to scoop out a channel down the center of each half then dice up flesh that is being removed and set aside. Place the hollowed zucchini halves onto a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
  4. Place the sausages into a nonstick pan over a medium heat after removing the casings and use a wooden spoon or spatula to break up the meat as it browns.
  5. Add the mushrooms, garlic, and the diced meat of the zucchini and continue sautéing until the veggies are soft and have a bit of color then empty the pan into a medium mixing bowl and let it cool for a minute or two.
  6. Add the scallions, bread and grated cheese and stir the mixture before adding the egg and stirring until the mixture is well combined.
  7. Spoon the filling into the hollowed out channels you made earlier.
  8. Sprinkle with grated cheese then drizzle each half with about a teaspoon of olive oil
  9. Bake it for 25 minutes at 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C
