Pizzuchini

I used leftover turkey sausage from breakfast to make Dashing Dish’s Pizzuchini. It like pizza toppings on a little zucchini boat. Fun and delicous. It doesn’t hurt that it is so easy as well!

Pizzuchini (adapted from Dashing Dish)

  • 2 large zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 lb (2 c) lean turkey sausage
  • 1/4 c onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 c pasta sauce (100 calories or less per serving)
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp basil
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet, combine ground turkey, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and basil.
  3. Cook over med-high heat until turkey is brown and cooked through.
  4. While the turkey is cooking, make the ‘zucchini boats’ by scooping the seeds from center of each zucchini half, using a spoon . This will make 4 ‘zucchini boats’. Set boats in baking dish, placing them side by side.
  5. Once the ground turkey is browned (drain most liquidy fat) , add the pasta sauce and parmesan cheese to the skillet, and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  6. Spoon turkey mixture into zucchini boats. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top of each boat.
  7. Bake zucchini boats for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.
Honorable Mention….My roommate Mary made her boyfriend this lovely meal.
A Bulgarian (her bf is Bulgarian 🙂 ) pork dish that does not have an official name.
I think she did a great job and the apartment smelled amazing!!
Next time she can do a guest post. How fun!
