Head over to Kalyn's Kitchen for the original recipe, because I didn't measure a thing!
I cooked a pound of ground turkey and a pound of italian turkey sausage-casings removed (used half for this recipe and saved the other half for pizza later in the week), added in some onion, a clove of minced garlic, and was supposed to add green pepper, which I managed to leave sitting on the counter - not to be discovered until after the zucchini cups were in the oven! I added spaghetti sauce to that, enough that it looked like the right consistency, and a little italian blend cheese.
I cut a couple of large zucchini to get 8 zucchini "cups", and after scooping out the inside - leaving a bottom - I filled them with the meat filling, and baked for 20 mins. Then added cheese, and cooked 10-15 minutes longer, until cheese is brown and bubbly. I put mine under the broiler for a minute...almost burned them!
I also added fresh basil...
So awesome to have a plate full of food that I GREW!! The cucumbers were soaked in vinegar with hot banana peppers and basil - all from the garden! Along with the zucchini of course.
