Ingredients   [ For 2 to 4 people ]    [   Preparation time : 15 minute  –  Cooking time : 15 minutes  ]

  • 2 large (14 oz each) zucchini, cut lengthwise into 12 (1/4-inch thick) slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup quick marinara sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese (I like Polly-O)
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 cup (3 oz) shredded mozzarella (I like Polly-O)

Preparation Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Spread 1/4 cup marinara sauce on the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  2. Cut the zucchini lengthwise, into 1/4-inch thick slices until you have a total of 12 slices about the same size. It’s easiest to do this with a mandolin. 
  3. Season both sides of the zucchini with 1/2 tsp salt and pepper, then grill on a grill pan over high heat to help dry out the zucchini, until pliable and grill marks form, but not fully cooked, about 2 minutes on each side.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the egg then mix together with ricotta, Pecorino Romano, basil, garlic, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper.
  5. Spread the ricotta mixture (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each) evenly onto each zucchini slice, spreading to cover.
  6. Roll up slices and arrange them each seam side down in the prepared dish.  Top each with 1 tbsp marinara sauce and 1 tbsp mozzarella cheese and tightly cover with foil.
  7. Bake 20 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and melted.

 

Enjoy it !!
