Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 3 servings


  • 3 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise with the middles scooped out

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

  • 3 spicy chicken sausages, casings removed (use GF if celiac)

  • ¼ cup of your favourite jarred tomato sauce

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • fresh basil for garnish


Preheat your oven to 400F.

In a large skillet heat the oil over medium heat. Fry the sausages & mushrooms until fully cooked, breaking up the meat into small pieces as you go. Pour tomato sauce over the cooked sausage/ mushrooms and stir to combine. Fill each hollowed out zucchini boat with the sausage and place in a baking dish. Top evenly with grated mozzarella cheese. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy!
