1/2-cup milk                                                       1/4-cup Parmesan cheese

3 tab. Italian Salad Dressing

 

Buy zucchini that are about 1 1/2 inches thick and 4-5 inches long. Wash and dry them and cut off the stems. Parboil them whole in boiling salted water for about 8 minutes. Drain and cool enough to handle. Cut zucchini lengthwise into halves. Scoop out some of the pulp and set aside. Place olive oil and butter in a skillet and heat. Add minced onions. Chop garlic and parsley together and add to onions. Sauté’ for 3 minutes. Remove casing from sausage and chop the meat. Add beef and sausage, salt, pepper and rosemary. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 325. Soak the bread in the milk until milk is absorbed. Squeeze out the liquid and shred the bread. Add grated cheese, shredded bread, and reserved zucchini pulp to the skillet. Blend well. Stuff zucchini with the mixture. Oil a baking pan with a mixture of oil and butter.  Arrange zucchini in the pan and sprinkle a few drops of olive oil over the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When cooked, spoon about 1 tsp. of the salad dressing over each warm zucchini half.   Can be an antipasto or main course.
