"After searching the internet for for a stuffed zucchini recipe made in a slow cooker, I wasn't too successful, so I decided to try my hand at it. My husband and I loved this recipe and I hope you do too! I served it with herbed pasta and apple sauce. Enjoy!" — mpenn

Slow Cooker Stuffed Zucchini Haiku: "The timing's way off! Would've been a 5-star meal, but most of it charred." So I followed this recipe exactly, but was skittish of 6 hrs. on high, so I went w/ the low setting - it smelled amazing most of the day and at around the 5 hr. mark, took on a burning-pizza-aroma. Ugh! The zucchini was burnt in most places to the bottom of the crockpot, and spots of the sausage on top were crunchified. Funny thing is though, it tasted really awesome, but just shouldn't have been in nearly that long. My husband said the picture that I took of it looked like doodie, but I had to post it anyway (the 1 of the 4 zucchini boats that I was able to yank out w/o losing burny bits at the bottom.) I'll gladly make it again, but probably opt to stick it in the oven instead.
