Italian Stuffed Zucchini


This is an easy, tasty way to use up zucchini. I have listed the ingredients per person so the amount can be adjusted, depending on how much zucchini you have. Can be made lacto-vegetarian or vegan.

1 serving


  • 1 zucchini

  • 2 tablespoons Italian-style dried bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • cup frozen burger-style crumbles

  • ½ cup spaghetti sauce

  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Slice each zucchini in half lengthwise. Hollow out the zucchini. Place the scraped out zucchini into a medium bowl. Combine zucchini, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, burger-style crumbles and pasta sauce. Mix well.

  3. Place mixture into hollowed out zucchini. Arrange zucchini in a baking dish, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese; bake for 40 minutes.
