Homemade Tomato Sauce
Simple very tasty health mid-week plan ahead dinner plan meals
- 3 Medium Zucchini / Cut in long strips
- 1 cup Ricotta
- 1 cup Italian Cheese or Cheese blend
- 24 oz Jar of Tomato Sauce
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 Tsp Dill / chopped
- 1 Tsp Parsley
- 2 Tsp Garlic / minced
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Using a mandolin or vegetable peeler make long thin slices. Two slices per serving of lasagna.
You could use a knife to make long cuts as well. Just make sure you do not cut them too thick or they will not bend into shape.
Add ricotta, cheese blend, dill, parsley, garlic, salt & pepper to a medium-sized bowl and mix ingredients. Whip the egg separately in a bowl and then add. Helps make sure the egg incorporates well.
- Prep the casserole dish, spread out all the tomato sauce covering the bottom of the casserole dish. Add a small amount of cheese to the top of the tomato sauce.
- Lay two strips of Zucchini in the shape of a cross.
Lay them perpendicular / 90 degrees on top of each other.
Add enough filling to the middle of the Zucchini so that you can still wrap the zucchini around its self.
Start with the zucchini on the bottom and bring it up over the top, repeating with both sides and both pieces. You'll have a small bundle. Flip over 180 degrees so the seams are on the bottom holding everything together and in place.
Place on top of the tomato sauce in a neat line for a nice presentation. Add a small amount of cheese to the tops of each individual zucchini wraps.
The cheese becomes golden brown after cooking.
- When your ready to cook, preheat your over to 425 degrees and bake for 15 to 20 minutes then serve asap.
- Garnish with Basil.
