Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 firm zucchini, sliced lengthwise, 1/4-inch thick (you will need 12 slices)
  • 1 bag (10 ounces) baby spinach

  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 9-inch baking dish. Set aside.

  8. Lay out the slices of zucchini on a cutting board (or any other working surface), wipe them down, and place a spoonful of the ricotta mixture on top of each zucchini slice.

  9. Roll up and transfer to the prepared baking dish, seam-side down.
