Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided in half
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 medium egg
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 0.5 oz sun-dried tomatoes

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat casserole dish with non-stick spray. Prepare the zucchini rolls by slicing each medium zucchini from end to end using a wide vegetable peeler. You will need 20 slices to fill a small casserole dish.

  • Pre-heat a pan on the stove. Heat the butter, garlic, and cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the remaining Parmesan cheese until the sauce thickens. Remove the sauce from the heat.
  • Ladle a third of the sauce into the bottom of the casserole dish.
  • Cut the tip of the piping bag or plastic bag.  Squeeze a strip of filling onto each of the zucchini noodle strips.
  • Roll each strip gently, being careful not to squeeze the filling out.
  • Place each zucchini roll into the casserole dish spiral side down into the sauce.
  • Stir the sundried tomatoes into the remaining sauce. Spoon the sauce over the rolls.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top the sauce is brown and bubbling. Remove from oven and cool to serve.
