  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Brush both sides of zucchini slices with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil; season with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Place on ungreased large cookie sheet; roast 15 to 18 minutes or until zucchini is pliable enough to roll. Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes.
  • 3
    Spread pasta sauce in baking dish; set aside.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, mix ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, the pepper flakes and egg yolk.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and remaining 2 tablespoons oil.
  • 6
    Spread 1 rounded tablespoon ricotta filling evenly over each zucchini strip. Gently roll up, and place rolls on sides (so spiral shows on top) in baking dish in 4 rows by 4 rows, keeping them close together. Top with bread crumb mixture.
  • 7
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until filling is heated through and crumbs are browned.
  • 8
    Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Be careful not to overroast the zucchini slices, or they may break during rolling.
  • The recipe calls for only 1 cup of the Muir Glen™ pasta sauce. You can use the rest of the sauce in the jar on spaghetti, which would make a nice side to this dish.
