Ingredients

1 jar
(570 mL)

Healthy Harvest® Pasta Sauce, Vegetable Medley

5

large zucchini (approx.)

2 tbsp
(30 mL)

olive oil

1/2 tsp (2 mL)

each salt and pepper

1 1/2 cups (375 mL)

whole or part skim ricotta cheese

1/2 cup
(125 mL)

shredded Parmesan cheese

1

clove garlic, grated

1/2 tsp (2 mL)

ground nutmeg

1 cup
(250 mL)

shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Trim ends of zucchini; slice into 18 (1/4-inch/5 mm) strips (set outer edges aside for another use). Lay out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes or until pliable. Cool to room temperature.
  1. Spread pasta sauce in a 9 x 12-inch (2.5 L) dish. Stir ricotta with Parmesan, garlic and nutmeg. Spread a generous tablespoon of filling thinly over each zucchini strip. Roll up into a pinwheel and set on sauce, spiral-side-up.
  1. Bake, covered, for 10 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until melted and bubbly.

Tips:

  • Assemble zucchini in the baking dish up to 2 days ahead. Place the dish in a cold oven and add start timer once the oven reaches 400˚F (200˚C).
  • Chop the leftover zucchini trimmings in your food processor to sneak hidden veggies into your next sloppy Joe filling, chili or meat sauce.
