- 1 lb. ground turkey

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut zucchini.
Use a mandolin to cut zucchini length wise into 1/8 inch thick slices. Sprinkle zucchini slices with salt and let it set for 30 minutes. Using a paper towel dab zucchini slices to remove excess moisture.
Sauté garlic and onion in oil over medium heat.
- Add meat and sauce
Add the ground turkey and once it is cooked through, add ¾ cup of the marinara sauce and set aside.
- Prepare additional ingredients
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup of mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan cheese, egg, Italian seasoning, and salt.
- Make roll-ups
Make the roll-ups by adding a layer of the cheese mix (approximately ½ tbsp) to each zucchini slice and then topping with a layer of ground turkey mix (approximately 1 tbsp). Roll slices and pin through with a tooth pick to hold together. Place the zucchini rolls in baking dish top with remaining marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
