Recipe: Zucchini Lasagna Roll-Ups

Zucchini Lasagna Roll-Ups

Zucchini makes it super easy to transform any dish into a lighter, healthier alternative. Zucchini is the perfect replacement for pasta because it’s very easy to shape and becomes soft when cooked.

Today, we are transforming zucchini into lasagna and rolling them up with creamy ricotta, parmesan, marinara sauce and lots of mozzarella cheese. If you’d prefer not to serve these as rolls, you can always just lay the zucchini flat in the pan and layer the cheese and sauce like a regular lasagna. Also, if vegetarian is not your thing, you can also use meat sauce and transform these lasagna rolls into meaty dinner too!

Zucchini Lasagna Roll-Ups

THE RECIPE:

Ingredients:

  • 4 large zucchini
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded (divided)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups marinara home-made or store-bought
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a sheet pan with 1 tablespoon oil and set aside.
  2. Slice zucchini into 1/8'' thick slices. Lay zucchini slices on grease sheet pan and oven roast for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before handling. Leave oven on for cooking the casserole.
  3. While the zucchini is roasting, mix the ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1 egg, and salt & pepper to taste. Stir just until combined.
  4. In a 9x13 casserole dish, spread some homemade tomato sauce on the bottom.
  5. Assemble zucchini roll ups by laying a zucchini strip on a flat surface and spread about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture first over each individual zucchini strip. Top with a tablespoon os marinara sauce and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Roll up and place in casserole dish. Repeat with remaining rolls. Drizzle remaining sauce (if any) on the rolls and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes at 400F or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
