Zucchini Manicotti Rolls on plateThis absolutely delicious recipe uses thinly sliced zucchini as the substitute for the pasta. It's healthier (especially for diabetics who need to watch their carbs) or anyone wanting to eat healthier since it has much less calories.


Even a great way to use those large zucchinis too!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1 or more zucchini
  • 1 lb spaghetti sauce (jar or homemade)
  • 4 oz cottage cheese
  • 4 oz mozzarella, cubed or shredded
  • Optional: your favorite spices
  • pinch Parmesan cheese as topping

  3. Put a little sauce on the bottom of a baking dish.
  4. pasta sauce on bottom of baking dish
  5. Mix the cubed mozzerella and cottage cheese together.
  6. cottage cheese and mozzarella

  7. Drop a spoonful onto one end of the zucchini piece, then roll it up. If they are too thick they may need a toothpick to hold them together a bit. Even if they snap, just place them in the dish. Sauce will cover them up anyway.
