I used hot Italian turkey sausage. It gave a nice "kick" to the dish.
NOT MY FAVOURITE
I used turkey breakfast sausage and put some shredded cheddar cheese in the bottom of each zucchini. I used basil and oregano from my herb garden. After broiling I added more sliced fresh basil. My zucchini was pretty large (about 10inches),, so I only used one and halved the recipe. My husband, who is not a zucchini fan, said this was a keeper and he was full after dinner. A real winner!
Whole family loved 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! Pros: flavorful
