Preheat oven 375 F. Halve the 3 zucchinis lengthwise. Hollow out the center of zucchini halves making a space for vegetable/meat filling. (Do not. hollow out too much of the center of the zucchini or the filling will not stay in the zucchini boat). Place zucchini halves in large baking pan with sides which has been sprayed with olive oil. In a large skillet, prepare filling by sauteing sausage on medium high heat until thoroughly cooked. Add onions, peppers, mushrooms, salt. pepper and garlic. Cook until tender, approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Add jar of Ragu pizza sauce, mixing well and heating through. Divide the filling into the 6 zucchini boats. Top with sliced tomatoes. Spray tops of tomatoes with olive oil spray. Cover with foil. Place in preheated oven and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until zucchinis are fork tender. The last five minutes, top with mozzarella cheese. Bake until melted.
