Zucchini Lasagna Roll-ups aka Zucchini Rollatini

Tender zucchini filled with creamy herbed spinach, and feta ricotta mixture, then topped with marinara and melty mozzarella cheese, these zucchini lasagna rollups are a perfect use of summer zucchini.

Summer and zucchini go hand in hand.   I’ll gladly heat the oven for fresh zucchini bread, zucchini roll-ups, and blueberry zucchini cake!

This recipe uses thin ribbons of zucchini to create lasagna rollups.  Rather than use pasta noodles, you use the zucchini ribbons to create the base for the delicious filling.  This keeps the dish low carb and healthy, allowing you to stay trim in your summer bathing suit! 😉

How to Make Zucchini Lasagna Roll-ups aka Zucchini Rollatini

Zucchini lasagna roll-ups are really easy to make.  Don’t be intimated by the number of steps – you are basically slicing zucchini, grilling it, making a filling, rolling the filled zucchini, and topping with marinara.   Totally worth the work and you’ll still have dinner on the table in under 40 minutes!

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Also heat the grill if using a grill to cook the zucchini. 

Slice the zucchini into long thin ribbons using a mandolin or a sharp knife. 

Sprinkle a light layer of salt on the zucchini and set aside for about 10 minutes while you prep the filling.

In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, feta cheese, egg, chopped spinach, minced garlic, chopped basil and parsley, salt, and pepper.  Mix until combined. 

Meanwhile, pat the zucchini dry with a paper towel to remove the excess moisture.  If using a grill pan, heat the grill pan. 

Brush each zucchini slice with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. 

Place the zucchini slices on the grill (or grill pan) to cook each side for about 3 minutes, just to soften.   I use a grill as it allows me to cook all the zucchini at one time, rather than 3-4 at a time in the grill pan.  Huge time saver!

Remove the zucchini from the grill and place a half tablespoon of filling onto each slice.  Roll up from the bottom.  Repeat. 

Pour 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce into your baking dish and place the filled zucchini rollups on top of the marinara sauce.
