Used cooked orzo instead of quinoa, used ground beef sausage instead of link turkey sausage. Didn't add tomatoes or marjoram. Sauted onion in the pan after sausage set to drain, then added chopped fresh swiss chard, adding water as needed to keep all from drying out. Everyone in the family ate it - big win!

In this stuffed zucchini recipe, turkey sausage and tomato are mixed with quinoa before filling the zucchini boats. Fresh marjoram lends floral notes to the quinoa-stuffing recipe, but any fresh herb will work.
5 Reviews for Sausage-&-Quinoa-Stuffed Zucchini
I had purchased a large bag of quinoa and had been looking for different ways to use it. This recipe is so delicious that I made it for friends. Everyone thorough enjoyed it and even asked for the recipe. I always make a new recipe as written and then make my own changes later, if necessary. I might try a different cheese on top next time, but otherwise loved it as is. This filling would also make delicious stuffed peppers. Peg, Mesa, AZ
This is my first time (no kidding here) to try zucchini. This dish definitely didn't disappoint.
I didn't have tomatoes on hand, so I opted those out. I used dill and rosemary for the herbs and they were delish!
This was so good, and didn't take too long to make. I don't have a microwave, so I just baked the zucchini in the oven at 375 for about 20 minutes or so. I also added some shredded cheddar cheese on top of the Parmesan. Will definitely make again, my family ate it up!
I made this with pork sausage and used fresh oregano. It was delicious and very easy to make.
