The sweet and earthy notes of the zucchini mingle harmoniously with the savory

meat, combined with creamy ricotta including hints of garlic and herbs from our

Roma Pizza seasoning. Creating a dish that elevates the humble zucchini,

ensuring a delightful contrast in every bite.



For the Zucchini Boat -

3 Zucchini Squash

1 LB of Ground Beef

1/2 LB of Ground Sausage

1 Jar of Rao’s Tomato Basil sauce

2 cups of Ricotta cheese

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1/3 cup of Parsley, finely chopped

1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese wedge, grated

1/3 cup of Mozzarella cheese block, shredded

2 1/2 Tbsp of Roma Pizza seasoning, Mom Cave Foods




Step 1

First, slice straight across the washed zucchini to create halves, then

scoop the inside seeds out and toss them aside. Put the zucchini onto a baking

tray and place in the preheated oven at 350 for 25 minutes.


Step 2

In a medium-sized pan on medium heat, add 1 pound of ground beef and

1/2 pound of ground sausage, break apart the meat as it cooks with a wooden


spatula, allow the meat to cook for 7 minutes then add 1 jar of Rao’s tomato

sauce, salt to taste and 1/2 Tsp of Roma Pizza seasoning to the pan, stir to

combine flavor and cook for an additional 5 minutes then remove from heat and

set aside.


Step 3

In a medium-sized bowl, add 2 cups of Ricotta, 4 cloves of minced garlic,

1/2 cup of grated Parmesan, 2 Tbsp of Roma Pizza seasoning, and 1/3 cup of

chopped parsley, with a spoon stir until well combined. Then, scoop 2-3 Tbsp of

the ricotta mixture onto the inside of the zucchini, then add 2-3 Tbsp of the meat

mixture on top of the ricotta, and sprinkle 1 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese

on top of the meat. Place the stuffed zucchini boats back into the oven on High

Broil for 5-6 minutes, then enjoy!
