Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini sliced in long strips ⅛ inch thick
  • 6.5 oz herb cheese*
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375˚F
  • Slice zucchini into thin strips (think 1/16th in). I used a mandolin to do this. If you cut it by hand the strips might not be as thin and you might need more zucchini, but it will still be delicious! 
  • Layout the zucchini stips and place a spoonful of cheese on one end. Then roll up and place in your baking dish.
  • After all the zucchini slices have been rolled, top each one with a generous spoonful of spaghetti sauce.
  • Sprinkle parmesan cheese over entire dish.
  • Bake for 15-20* minutes
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Notes: *I used the Alouette Garlic and Herb Soft Spreadable Cheese for this recipe. It was located near the deli section of my grocery store where all the fancy cheese are kept. *My husband and I like these a little crunchy so I bake them for only 15 minutes. If you want a softer more noodle type texture cook longer. Depending on how thick your slices are you will need to adjust cook time accordingly.
