A zucchini lasagna recipe that is easy to make and looks great too. Packed full of flavour, this low carb zucchini recipe will be one you want to make again and again.
Zucchini strips make a great low carb replacement for pasta and are often used flat in a lasagna recipe. In this easy zucchini lasagna recipe, the zucchini is sliced into thin strips with a cheesy filling and baked with a low carb marinara sauce.
This zucchini recipe makes one of the best replacements for pasta that I have baked to date. The thin zucchini strips, once baked work so well. We both found this dish very filling and even declined an additional portion which is almost unheard of! Infact, this zucchini lasagna roll up recipe is so good that I baked it again a couple of days later. Have you ever made a recipe and think to yourself “why on earth have I not made this before and is it possible to now eat only this for the next month?”
Easy Zucchini Recipe
The possibilities for various fillings for the zucchini roll ups are endless. I used cream cheese in place of the ricotta which held up well. You could use cooked ground chicken or beef or even some chopped vegetables. Perhaps a spinach and ricotta filling too?
This zucchini lasagna recipe can be made ahead of time or even frozen, then baked when you are ready. I loved this recipe so much that I might have to keep an emergency dish of this in the freezer. Let’s hope that there are zucchinis in the supermarket this weekend for me!
You could also try a baked zucchini ravioli recipe which is a similar dish but made with zucchini parcels, not roll ups.
