These zucchini bites are a favorite at my house. They are so easy to make and they taste incredible! You can make them as a side dish or as a main course! Either way you need to make these ASAP!
This zucchini recipe is a healthy dinner idea inspired by one of my favorite restaurants. A few months ago my husband and I were in the DC area and went to one of our favorite restaurants called Burtons. It has healthy, delicious food that we always enjoy.
The last time we were there, we ordered their grilled zucchini bites and oh my goodness, a new found favorite food was discovered! I knew immediately I had to figure out how to make something similar back home. Well, here it is, and this super easy recipe does not disappoint!
Seriously, who can argue with four ingredients and a total cook and prep time of 20 minutes?! For something as delicious as this, making this is a no brainer!
To make these zucchini bites, all you have to do is:
- slice your zucchini into thin flat strips (I used this mandolin)
- add herb cheese and roll up
- top with your favorite tomato sauce
- bake for 15-20 minutes
This can easily be made into zucchini lasagna as well! Instead of rolling up the zucchini strips, lay them flat, spread the cheese over them and then put another layer of zucchini on top. Repeat until out of ingredients! Top with your tomato sauce and parmesan, then bake. Super simple and still delicious!
We never have leftovers when we make this. I guess I just need to make way more! Anyways, give them a try and let me know how you like them!
Grilled Stuffed Zucchini Bites
These grilled stuffed zucchini bites are a fast easy healthy dinner! No pasta and yet they taste like yummy lasagna! There won’t be any leftovers!
- 1 large zucchini sliced in long strips 1/8 inch thick
- 6.5 oz herb cheese*
- 1 cup spaghetti sauce
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375˚F
Slice zucchini into thin strips. I used a mandolin to do this. If you cut it by hand the strips might not be as thin and you might need more zucchini, but it will still be delicious!
Layout the zucchini stips and place a spoonful of cheese on one end. Then roll up and place in your baking dish.
After all the zucchini slices have been rolled, top each one with a generous spoonful of spaghetti sauce.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese over entire dish.
Bake for 15-20* minutes
Notes: *I used the Alouette Garlic and Herb Soft Spreadable Cheese for this recipe. It was located near the deli section of my grocery store where all the fancy cheese are kept. *My husband and I like these a little crunchy so I bake them for only 15 minutes. If you want a softer more noodle type texture cook longer. Depending on how thick your slices are you will need to adjust cook time accordingly.
