4 large zucchini
1 lb Italian sausage
1 cup marinara sauce
4 ounces mozarella, grated
24 slices pepperoni
fresh basil, for garnish


1.Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.

3.Pour the marinara sauce on top of the cooked sausage and stir together. Remove from the heat.
4.Slice the zucchini in half. Use a small spoon to scoop out the seeds, leaving 1/4 to 1/2-inch of flesh around the outside of the zucchini.

6.Dollop several spoonfuls of the sausage and sauce into each zucchini half, until they're full. Top with mozzarella cheese and several slices of pepperoni.
7.Bake the stuffed zucchini for 20-25 minutes, until it's tender crisp. If you'd like softer zucchini, bake a few minutes longer.
8.Serve the stuffed zucchini boats while warm and enjoy!
