Stuffed Magda Zucchini

Magda Squash

The larger Magda Zucchini, described as a Middle Eastern variety of zucchini, are great for stuffing. The flavor of the squash by itself is kind of a sweet, nutty flavor. You can use different fillings for the sweet or savory flavors that you like. We enjoy using veggies with pork sausage for a great savory dish!


2 Magda Zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and the seed scooped out

1 pound Pork Sausage (try our sausage if you haven’t yet)

1 onion, diced

1 large sweet red pepper (or hot pepper if you prefer), diced

2-3 small paste-type tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup bread crumbs

3 tablespoons fresh oregano, finely chopped or dried if you don’t have the fresh

Salt & Pepper to taste


In a bowl combine the chopped veggies with the sausage and bread crumbs

Sprinkle the cavity of the squash with your salt & pepper and the herbs.

Fill the cavity with the sausage and veggie mixture.

Bake covered in a 400 degree F oven till the squash is fork-tender.

The time will vary greatly depending on the size of the squash that you are using.
