Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Cut the zucchinis in half, lengthwise, and remove their flesh with a spoon. 
  • Transfer the flesh into a bowl and set aside. 
  • Transfer the zucchinis to a baking pan, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with the olive oil. 
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until you prepare the sauce.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven. 

For the sauce

  • Finely chop the onion, the garlic, and the bell pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. 
  • Sauté the vegetables for 2-3 minutes until they are slightly tender. 
  • Finely chop the flesh of the zucchinis that you kept in the bowl, and add it to the frying pan.
  • Sauté for 2-3 minutes until they lose their moisture. 
  • Deglaze the pan with the wine, mix with a serving spoon, and add the tomato puree, salt, and pepper. 
  • Allow 5-7 minutes for the sauce to boil and remove the frying pan from the heat. 
  • Stuff the zucchinis that you baked with the sauce. Add the mozzarella and the chorizo.
  • Transfer the baking pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden. 
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven, sprinkle with the thyme, and serve. 

Tip

For a kids’ version, you can replace the chorizo with another kind of deli meat!
