This is an easy, tasty way to use up zucchini. I have listed the ingredients "per person" so the amount can be adjusted, depending on how much zucchini you have. Can be made lacto-vegetarian or vegan.
This can be purchased at most supermarkets or you can use other meat substitutes.
Very good, added some spinach and ricotta cheese to the mixture. Also, let it cook for 30 minutes before throwing the cheese on top and letting it melt. - 20 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I've been trying to reduce the carbohydrates in my diet and this recipe really helped me on Friday night which is my family's "pizza night". The zucchini in this recipe is the "crust". First I sprinkled garlic powder on the scooped out zucchini shells. I substituted pizza sauce for the pasta sauce and I browned and crumbled italian sausage instead of using the frozen burger style crumbles. In addition, I only used half as much bread crumbs and twice as much parmesan cheese. It satisfied my pizza craving and I didn't feel like I missed my favorite food. Thanks!! - 28 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I assumed TVP is a generic term and used "no meat sausage", which I browned with green onions and musrooms. I followed someone's earlier advice and switched to a 4-cheese blend. And I couldn't find italian bread crumbs, so I put 2 slices of whole wheat bread in the blender. My family (and my son's vegetarian girlfriend) loved it. I'll be doing this again. - 11 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
