SRC: Sausage Stuffed Summer Squash

Well June certainly flew by and now it’s time again for Secret Recipe Club!

Sausage Stuffed Summer Squash

If you’re new around here: members of the Secret Recipe Club are assigned a blog each month. Who has who is a secret until reveal day (today!). The mission is to choose a recipe from the assigned blog, make it, and share it!

Secret Recipe Club

This month I was assigned Making Miracles, a blog by Rebekah, who has been blogging since 2006 and has a ton of delicious recipes on her site! I was highly considering her Banana Scones recipe (uhm, hello, delicious!) or her General Tso’s Chicken (one of Nick’s favorite foods).

But in the end, I had to go with her Stuffed Zucchini recipe since I have 10 million summer squashes to use up. I used yellow squash instead of zucchini and it worked great! Nick proclaimed this his favorite squash recipe to date, so I’ll definitely be trying this recipe with some of my pattypans!

Sausage Stuffed Summer Squash

(adapted from Making Miracles)

  • 3 medium yellow summer squash
  • 1 lb Italian sausage (I used hot)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (32 ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Trim the stems from the squash and slice them lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and put in bowl. Mix seeds with sausage, garlic, bread crumbs, egg and Parmesan cheese. Stuff squash with sausage mixture and place in a 9×13 inch baking pan.


Pour sauce over squash and cover pan with foil.

Bake 45 minutes. Remove foil and cover with mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and cook until cheese is melted.

    This is my kind of recipe!! I love all types of squash, but especially summer squash and zucchini. I can’t wait for the squash in my garden to grow so that I can make this recipe asap! Awesome pick this month :)

    I’m a fan of any food that is cooked inside of another food (like stuffed peppers!) so this is totally my thing. And I love that you are able to cook recipes with all the stuff from your garden! So cool!

    That looks so delicious – I have always wanted to try stuffed zucchini because it’s my absolute favorite squash, but I’d definitely try the yellow neck too. My MIL would love this recipe as well! Great pick – happy reveal day!

    That’s really turning squash into a first class dish!
