Remove casings from sausage. In large saucepan, cook sausage over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Drain off fat.
Add garlic, onion, zucchini, oregano, salt and pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, about 3 minutes. Add rice, stirring to coat.
Add 3 cups (750 mL) of the stock; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer, stirring once, for 15 minutes. Add remaining stock; simmer, stirring often, until moist and creamy, 5 minutes. Stir in tomato, Parmesan and parsley.
