  6. Heat the oil and add the onion, garlic and bell pepper. Cook on a medium-low heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the onions are translucent.

  7. Add the chopped zucchini, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Combine with the sausage and cook a few more minutes.

  8. Using a spoon, fill each hollowed zucchini with ⅓ cup cooked sausage, pressing firmly. Top each with 2 tablespoons each of sauce, 1 tablespoon each of shredded mozzarella cheese, and 1 teaspoon each of parmesan cheese.
