  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, finely diced

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Using a mandolin or knife, trim off the ends of the zucchini and cut lengthwise into 1/8 inch thick slices (20-24 slices). Lay zucchini flat and sprinkle with salt. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, pat zucchini with paper towel to remove moisture.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat combine oil, crushed garlic, and onion. Sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add ground turkey and cook until completely cooked through.
  • Pour 1 cup marinara sauce into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl combine ricotta, Parmesan cheese, egg, Italian seasonings, salt and pepper. Combine with the ground turkey mixture and stir until combined.
  • Place a half a slice of cheese on top of each strip of zucchini. Place 1 Tbsp. of the turkey & cheese mixture at top end of a zucchini slice. Roll zucchini slice up and place in a 9-inch square baking dish. Repeat with remaining cheese mixture and zucchini slices.
  • Pour remaining 1/2 cup marinara sauce over the roll-ups.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
  • Optional- Prior to baking use 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella to sprinkle over the top of the roll-ups.
