Total Time: 40 minutes
•4 medium zucchini
•1/4 pound pork sausage
•1/4 cup chopped onion
•1 clove garlic minced
•1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
•1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers
•1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions for stuffed zucchini
Cook whole zucchini in boiling salted water until just tender, about 6 to 9 minutes. Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise; scoop out squash, mash, and set aside. Place shells in a shallow baking dish; set aside. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, cook sausage with chopped onion; drain off excess fat; stir in mashed zucchini. Reserving 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese for topping, add remaining Parmesan cheese to the meat mixture along with remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spoon mixture into zucchini shells; sprinkle stuffed zucchini with the reserved 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Bake stuffed zucchini at 350° for 20 to 30 minutes.
Stuffed zucchini serves 4.
