    Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce (from 24-oz jar) in bottom of baking dish; set aside.

  • 4
    Cut 3 to 4 large zucchini into 1/8-inch slices. Layer 5 zucchini slices on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High 30 seconds. Immediately spread 1 1/2 tablespoons ricotta filling onto each of the 5 zucchini slices. Roll up each slice; place seam side down in baking dish. Repeat with remaining zucchini slices and filling.

Expert Tips

  • Make sure to slice the zucchini thin! The thinner they are, the easier they roll.
  • To make this a heartier meal, add cooked and crumbled Italian sausage or ground beef to the rolls. Spread over the ricotta layer before rolling the zucchini.
