 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Giant         Zucchini
    1      Lb            Italian Sausage
    2      Large         Onions -- Chopped
    2      Cloves        Garlic -- Finely Chopped
                         Fresh Bread Crumbs
                         Tomato Paste
                         herbs of choice
                         Cheese Of Choice
 
 The amounts are not specified since you go by “feel.”
 
 Put holes in the zucchini with a fork and microwave until soft.  No
 microwave - par-boil the zucchini in a pot of water until soft.  Cool the
 zucchini and half it lengthwise.  With a spoon take out the seeds. 
 Remove the pulp from the zucchini, leaving some flesh near the skin to
 make zucchini “boats.”  Chop the zucchini flesh.
 
 Brown the Italian sausage in a large skillet.  Drain off most of the
 grease.  Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent.  Add chopped
 zucchini, herbs of choice (I use basil & Italian mix) and enough bread
 crumbs and tomato paste for a texture similar to turkey dressing. 
 Sprinkle with cheese (I don't care for Parmesan so usually use Asiago or
 Romano).  Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.  The top should be golden
 brown.
