*Can sub for pork, chicken, or vegetarian sausage
Gather all ingredients. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 13” x 9” baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
To prepare the zucchini boats, use a spoon to scoop the centers from the zucchini while leaving a 1/4″ rim on all sides to create boats. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add crumbled sausage and cook through. In the last minute of cooking, add the minced garlic.
Remove the sausage mixture from heat. Stir in diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs, and Italian seasoning.
Sprinkle 1/3 cup parmesan over empty zucchini boats. Next, divide sausage filling among the zucchini boats.
In a small mixing bowl stir together the mozzarella cheese, remaining 1/3 cup parmesan, and remaining 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs. Sprinkle mixture over zucchini boats.
Bake in the oven until tender, around 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your zucchini.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm paired with Toby’s Blue Cheese Dressing. Enjoy your Stuffed Zucchini Boats!
