2 large, cut lengthwise into 12 (1/4-inch thick) slices

1/2 Tsp salt

fresh black pepper, to taste

1 cup marinara sauce

1 large egg

2/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese

1/2 cup grated Romano cheese, plus more for serving

1/4 cup chopped basil

1 garlic clove, minced

3/4 cup 3 oz shredded mozzarella


(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 as noted. 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. (3) In a medium bowl, beat the egg then mix together with ricotta, Romano, basil, garlic, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper.

Spread the ricotta mixture (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each) evenly onto each zucchini slice to cover. (4) Roll up slices and arrange them each seam side down in the prepared dish. (5) Top each with 1 tbsp marinara sauce and 1 tbsp mozzarella cheese and tightly cover with foil. (6) Bake 20 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and melted.
