Step 1

Line the sliced zucchini on a large baking sheet or cutting board and season with salt on both sides. Let them stand for 15 minutes, then wipe off the released water.

Step 2

Season ground beef with salt, pepper, onion powder, thyme, oregano, garlic powder and paprika. Cook in a skillet for 7-10 minutes, until fully cooked.

Step 3

In a bowl combine the ricotta, egg, 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup of mozzarella.

Step 4

Add ground beef mixture to the ricotta mixture and mix to combine. Preheat oven to 375 F.

Step 5

Add tomato sauce to the bottom of a baking dish or a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Spread about 1 1/2 tbsp of the filling over each zucchini stripe and roll.

Step 6

Place rolls vertically in the skillet over the sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese.

Step 7

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and zucchini is cooked. Serve.
