Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 lb Italian sausage
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup parmesan grated
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3 oz mozzarella sliced or grated

Instructions
 

  • In a medium skillet, sauté the sausage until cooked through, breaking up any clumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in the tomato paste and enough water until the mixture is saucy.
  • Stir in the grated parmesan and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
  • Preheat the grill to medium.
  • Slice the zucchini half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh, leaving at least 1/2 inch all around. Brush the insides with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the zucchini face down until becoming tender and grill marks appear on the flesh, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the grill and stuff the zucchini with the sausage mixture.
  • Set the stuffed zucchini back on the grill and top with the cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted and the stuffing is heated through, another 10 to 12 minutes.
