- 3 medium zucchini
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 8 oz mozzarella fresh preferable
- 1 tablespoon basil leaves
- 3 sun dried tomatoes
- ¾ cup marinara sauce
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese grated
Prepare the zucchini
- With a vegetable peeler, peel the zucchini lengthwise into strips.
- Sprinkle the zucchini strips with salt and let sit for 20-30 minutes. This is to remove the water content of the zucchini. Dab them with paper towels to remove the salt and water.
Make the filling
- Slice the mozzarella into 6 slices.
- Chop the basil leaves
- Thinly slice the sun-dried tomatoes
- Place two zucchini strips overlapping each other.
- Take another two zucchini strips and place them on the zucchini strips to make a cross.
- Place a mozzarella slice in the centre of the zucchini “cross”.
- Scatter basil and the sun dried tomatoes on the mozzarella slice.
- Fold each side to seal the cheese mixture then flip over the ravioli so the seam side is on the bottom.
- Repeat making 6 parcels (or more depending upon the size of your zucchini)
- Spoon the marinara sauce into a baking dish
- Place the zucchini parcels on top of the marinara sauce.
- Sprinkle the zucchini parcels with the grated mozzarella.
- Bake 200C/400F for 20 minutes
I made 6 medium zucchini parcels. This may vary depending upon the size of the zucchini used.
