  1. I just made this tonight, and it was delicious! I substituted very lean ground beef for the sausage but did everything else the same. And it was great -- and, most importantly, fast and easy! I'm going to try freezing a few of the left-over zucchini boats, we'll see how that goes. Thanks for a great recipe!
