Italian-style dried bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
frozen burger-style crumbles
shredded mozzarella cheese
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.
It turned out fine but would probably be better suited to a sweeter spaghetti sauce. I used my grandfather's saltier spaghetti sauce recipe which I think is better paired with meat instead of vegetables. Parmesean cheese always makes an Italian dish better though. I'd still make it again.
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.
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!!
This was a great recipe for my homegrown zucchini. My daughter loved it. Instead of the burger crumbs I fryed up some mild italian sausage and it was a hit with my family.
This was yummy! My family was skeptical, as the presentation isn't REAL attractive, but they agreed the taste was great! I used 2 cups of browned ground round, as we don't like the TVP. My zucchini were small, so I used only a small portion of the scooped out portion in the recipe. Even then there was quite a bit of leftover filling, which I baked separately. This recipe will be a great help when we are overrun with our garden zucchini! Thanks!
Really, really good! Per other reviews, I baked the extra stuffing along side the stuffed zucchini. I also topped off the zucchini and extra stuffing with some mozzerela cheese the last few minutes of baking. Too good!
We really liked this. I had leftover meat spaghetti & fresh mozz so I decided this would be good. I make my own bread crumbs & didn't even use the parm. Really tasty, I'll make it often!
