Chicken Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

This came out yummy. I've made this in the past with butter, Jimmy dean Sausages, bread and it was higher in fat and calories. You'd think it's zucchini come on I'm eating lighter right LOL.. Well now you can. This was 287 cal and 8 g of fat. I had mine with rice and broccoli and it was about 505 cal and 8 g of fat.

This serves 2 people you could serve 4 with it if you wanted a smaller meal.

2 medium Zucchini
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup Betty Crocker Homestyle stuffing mix (turkey flavor)
1/2 cup water
2 Al fresco Chicken sausage Roasted Garlic (You can use another sausage as long as it is under 140 cal &   8g fat)

Preheat oven to 375

Cut zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the center leaving a well for the stuffing. Put the scooped zucchini into a frying pan on high with the onions and sausage that has been quartered and sliced into 1/4 slices. Cook until sausage is done or if using fully cooked sausage just until the onions are translucent. Turn off the heat and add the stuffing mix and water, stir until moistened and let sit till water is absorbed. Place zucchini in a pan cut side up and divide the stuffing mix with the 4 halves. Cook for about 25-30 min. or cooked to your liking. Some people in my family like it a little on the crunchy side and others like it mushy. So it all depends on your taste. Serve this with some rice and broccoli for a complete meal under 505 cal and 8 g fat.
