Zucchini lasagna rolls

Enjoy these zucchini lasagna rolls! They are packed with flavor and a great way to incorporate vegetables into your meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

1
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with cooking spray or olive oil and set aside.
2
Slice the zucchini lengthwise into thin strips, about 1/4 inch thick. You can use a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife for this step. If the zucchini slices are too wide, you can cut them in half crosswise.
3
In a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, egg, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
4
Lay out the zucchini slices on a flat surface. Spread a spoonful of the ricotta mixture onto each zucchini slice, covering the entire surface.
5
Starting from one end, roll up each zucchini slice tightly and place it seam-side down in the prepared baking dish.
6
Repeat the process with the remaining zucchini slices and ricotta mixture until all the ingredients are used.
7
Pour the marinara sauce evenly over the zucchini rolls in the baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
8
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
9
Remove the zucchini lasagna rolls from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
10
Serve the zucchini lasagna rolls warm as a main dish or a side dish. They make a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional lasagna.
