  • 4 large zucchini
  • 15 ounce Vodka Sauce
  • 16 ounces sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 cup Mozzarella shredded
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400º Fahrenheit.
  • Wash the zucchinis thoroughly and cut off the end pieces. Slice each zucchini lengthwise in half. Take a spoon to scoop out the inside flesh. Discard zucchini flesh or use it to make some delicious Zucchini Bread.
  • Lightly spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place zucchini shells skin side down and season the inside of the zucchini with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Brown sausage in a large skillet. Use a wooden spoon (or this magical tool) to break up the sausage. Once fully cooked add the Vodka sauce to the skillet. Continue to simmer until heated through.
  • Fill each zucchini shell with the sausage mixture. Sprinkle with Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake uncovered at 400º Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
