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


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Add the sausage to a pan on medium heat and use a spatula to break it up. Cook on medium heat until it's cooked through and browned.
  • Pour the marinara sauce on top of the cooked sausage and stir together. Remove from the heat.
  • 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.
  • Place the zucchini on a baking sheet.
  • 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.
  • Bake the stuffed zucchini for 20-25 minutes, until it's tender crisp. If you'd like softer zucchini, bake a few minutes longer.
  • Serve the stuffed zucchini boats while warm and enjoy!


  • I'm using an old baking sheet, but if you need a new one I always recommend a heavy duty baking sheet that doesn't warp.
