  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a baking dish (size is dependent on the size of your zucchini).
  2. Place crumbled sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
  3. Partially cook zucchini in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let cool for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine eggs, Colby cheese, cottage cheese, Italian blend cheese, onion, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  4. Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and rinse. Place both halves in prepared baking dish and sprinkle with garlic salt. Layer the sausage, tomatoes and cheese mixture in each half.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Then broil for 5 minutes to brown the cheese.

Very tasty! I'm sure this is the best of the stuffed Zuc recipes on here. Instead of Colby, cottage, and italian cheeses, I used about 1.5 cups of mozza and 1.5 cups of cheddar, and a few table...

great taste. I modified it by slicing the zuchini and laying them in the bottom of a 13x9. Then layered the other ingredients on top. Could reduce the amount of sausage by half and not effect...

I love stuffed zucchini recipes and this one looked really good and close to what I had on hand. That being said I changed it so much I'm not even sure it's the same recipe but it inspired me! ...

This was FANTASTIC!!! I varied it by cooking the onion with the sausage. Brought it to a party the 1st time I ever made it and everyone raved about it...then asked for the recipe!!! no doubt this recipe will taste very good as it is baking as we speak. However, I read and reread the recipe as I found it strange that you could pop the zucchini in the microwave and cook ...

we had a 21" zucchini that was 14" around and the stuffing was just the right. Had to use a huge roasting pan and cooked it about 5 min more. It was terriffic and a real keeper.

I followed the recipe precisely, with the exception of using shredded mozzarella in place of the italian blend cheese. It's a great combination of flavors with the zucchini. My husband's only ...

This was great! We didn't have cottage cheese so I just added a little bit more cheese and more tomato to make sure it wasn't dry. I also wanted to use up what we had in our garden and added so...
