    Told GoFish that I would post some pics on making stuffed zucchini's and since that was what we were having for the family sunday dinner, here goes.

    Start out by slicing your zucchini lengthwise and scooping out the flesh.
    Save the flesh and add one chopped onion and any other veg such as celery, pepper etc
    Brown 3 hot Italian sausage and 3 sweet Italian sausage together
    Add the reserved vegetables to the browned sausage and cook down till the onions are clear
    When veggies are ready, add about ½ cup grated parmesan cheese and 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs, stir till moisture is absorbed and remove from heat
    Stuff your zucchini shells with the mixture when it cools enough to work with, cover with cheese of your choice and then put them on the smoker for about 2 hours at 275*
    Here is what it looks like finished and on a plate with some corn on the cob, wild rice with shiitake mushrooms and some cheesy bread.
    Sounds like a lot of steps, but it really only takes about 45 minutes to prep it and then the cooking is in the smoker so it’s not that bad.

    Hope everyone has a good Sunday. Now for the race in Bristol[​IMG]
