Stuffed Zucchini

I am not to fond of zucchini and neither are the girls! I usually hide them in recipes but we really like them stuffed.

4 zucchini cut in half length wise
1/2 an onion diced
1 package chicken sausage (remove casings)
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup spinach chopped
1 cup fat free mozzarella
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
Italian blend Mrs. Dash
Salt and pepper

Preheat over to 400 degrees.Using a spoon scoop out the inside of zucchini into a small bowl. Be careful not to press to hard so they don't break. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the coconut oil to pan and add onion. Cook until almost tender then add chicken sausage and break it up. Cook sausage until brown and add chopped garlic, zucchini flesh, spinach and can of tomatoes. Season with Mrs. Dash, salt and pepper. Cook about 20 minutes and then remove from heat.
Stuff mixture into hollowed out zucchini halves. You might have some mixture leftover but that's okay. Place stuffed zucchini halves in baking dish and pour a little bit of water in the bottom of the pan. Cover with tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove tinfoil add cheese and bake just until cheese is melted, then serve.
