Grilled lasagna zucchini boats

Matt and I brought these lasagna zucchini boats stuffed with sausage sauce and cheese. We made them at home and then grilled them on site.
How to make grilled zucchini boats
We took eight large zucchinis, cut them in half, scraped out a little “boat” in the middle, rubbed with olive oil and salt, and baked for 20 minutes at 400*. The pre-bake was just to slightly soften the zucchini and ensure cooked through on the grill. We got a large amount of sungold tomatoes from our employee’s farm and cooked them down into a sauce with typical seasonings (like oregano and garlic) while the zucchini baked. (You could also just use a pre-made sauce if you’re replicating this technique – probably about 2 jars of sauce worth.)
Once the sauce cooked down and thickened, we mixed it with ricotta (one whole container) and filled some of the zucchini for vegetarians. Then we cooked a pound of spicy Italian sausage from The Rock Barn, mixed it with the rest of the sauce and filled the rest of the zucchini. They all were topped with shredded mozzarella and ready to grill.
When we got to the party, we grilled the zucchini until they were warm and bubbly and the cheese melted. The charcoal taste infused throughout!
We’ve taken every advantage to have outdoor parties this summer – from slip n slide soirées to chill deck nights. There is always music involved! Earlier we used our kitchen radio or a little bluetooth speaker I bought to broadcast our playlists, but now we are well equipped with the ultimate portable party music machine: a Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II.
My friend has one of these, so when I had an offer to work together on a sponsored post I knew I’d have good things to say. This tiny speaker has BIG sound – lots of bass and great volume. It’s loud enough to be heard through our whole house as well as across a yard outside. It costs $199, but you get what you pay for – this guy is far superior to my other bluetooth speaker that was about 1/3 of the price.
Thank you Bose for sponsoring this post.
