5 Ingredients Zucchini Roll-Up sis one dish which is a perfect combination of ‘Simplicity + Taste + Beauty’ and so easy to make that you’ll be absolutely surprised.

Since I had started my food blog, nothing gives me more satisfaction than making a recipe that not only feeds the tummy but also my soul.

That is just what happened with these 5 Ingredients Zucchini Roll-Ups – Super Easy Recipe.


Past few weeks have been so hectic that I didn’t even get to spend much time with my family.

So while I was finishing up the last of my week’s scheduled work, I was also planning on a comfort meal for the whole family.

Something easy yet absolutely delectable…and that doesn’t take much time to cook. And these 5 Ingredients Zucchini Roll-Ups was the answer.

They are filling enough to be served as an entree and for dessert, we’ll be noshing on my 7 Mins Chocolate Coconut No-Cook Pudding

(well, you gotta have desserts for all those comfy family meals).


The recipe calls for 3 main ingredients which can be easily found in most of our kitchens or pantry.

They are Zucchini (hehehhe – off course), ricotta and marinara sauce.

And to make this special recipe, I wanted to use a simple yet rich in flavor sauce hence I got Mezzetta® Marinara – Italian Plum Tomato as it’s Simple – Rich – Real.


What it means:

• Simple. Fewest, freshest, finest ingredients.

• Rich. The world’s best tomatoes – hailing from the rich soils of Italy’s San Marzano region.

• Real. All natural. No sugar. No paste. No shortcuts.


Ingredients for 5 Ingredients Zucchini Roll-Ups:

Zucchini, look for smooth, dent/scratch free zucchini.

Ricotta Cheese

Seasoning: Salt, pepper and Italian seasoning (if you like).

Marinara Sauce

As soon as the zucchini rosettes were done, I added the Marinara Sauce on the base of my serving dish and placed the stuffed zucchini rosettes over it.


(I’m so obsessed with rosettes shaped food these days).

Then added another layer of Italian Plum Tomato Marinara Sauce, sprinkled some cheese and the dish was placed in the oven to bake for 20 minutes. 

After 20 minutes, you get this piping hot dish that’s bubbling with cheese and marinara sauce.

Serve it immediately and enjoy with your loved ones.
