    Tips for Best Zucchini Lasagna Roll-Ups

    1. Make sure you use medium or long zucchinis. Otherwise, it will be difficult to add any filling and roll them up.
    2. Using a mandoline to slice the zucchinis evenly into 1/8-inch thick strips.
    3. Extract excess moisture from the zucchini to avoid soggy roll-ups. To do this, first, lay the zucchini strips flat in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with a paper towel. Sprinkle each side with salt, let stand 15 minutes. Dab the zucchini on each side with a paper towel before rolling them. Draining the excess moisture also makes the zucchini softer and easier to roll without breaking.
    4. When adding the filling on the zucchini strips, leave about 1/2-inch on the end where you start rolling the zucchini and about 1-inch on the other end. This helps you not to overstuff the zucchini roll-ups and makes it easier to roll. The roll-ups also don’t collapse when you place them in the baking dish.
    5.  Place the zucchini lasagna roll-ups close together in the baking dish. This helps them not to collapse.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 5 medium zucchini (about 3 lbs), , sliced lengthwise into 30 1/8-inch thick strips
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 3/4 lbs Italian sausage
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • salt and pepper
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
    • 1 cup Ricotta cheese
    • 1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella, divided
    • 2 cups Marinara Sauce

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Lay zucchini slices flat in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each side with salt; let stand 15 minutes. Before rolling, dab zucchini with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture.
    • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks. Add chopped onion and garlic to the skillet and cook for another 1-2 minutes. 
    • Transfer cooked sausage and onion mixture to a mixing bowl using a slotted spoon to drain excess fat. Add egg, chopped basil, 1 cup ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese to the bowl. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Stir until everything is well combined.
    • Preheat oven to 400 F. 
    • Spread 1 cup marinara sauce onto the bottom of a 9-inch oven-proof skillet; set aside.
    • Spread 1 tablespoon sausage cheese mixture evenly along each zucchini slice. Roll up and place in the prepared skillet; repeat with remaining zucchini slices. Top zucchini roll-ups with remaining 1 cup marinara sauce and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella on top.
    • Bake in a preheated oven for about 25 minutes. Serve warm.

    looks amazing – do you have a recommendation for a meat substitute for this dish?

      Hi Jenny, are you looking for vegan or vegetarian zucchini roll up options? the first thing that came to my mind is – you could use white fish, cooked lentils or maybe even mushrooms. I haven’t tried them with any of these but I think it will turn out great! Let me know if you try it and how it like it. 🙂
