The other day I invited a vegetarian dinner for a friend and I have to tell you about the delicious main course. After the starter, a mixed salad of cress and sunflower seeds, there was zucchini cannelloni stuffed with ricotta and spinach. You do not believe how tasty the little rolls were! Of course I had to elicit the recipe from my girlfriend. I got it and even allowed to share it with you! :) So look forward to an incredibly delicious low carb recipe from the category Quick Recipes.

Low Carb Zucchini Cannelloni

Zucchini is one of my absolute vegetable favorites. I love zucchini noodles, zucchini lasagna and now also the wonderful zucchini cannelloni! The small vegetable rolls with ricotta and spinach are stuffed and baked in a spicy tomato sauce. I could have spooned the ricotta and spinach stuffing. So wonderfully creamy and good!

For the recipe, the zucchini are first cut into thin slices and fried. But you can also do without searing if you have little time. Then the whole thing is just a bit more watery. Then the zucchini slices are spread with a ricotta cream and rolled up. They are then baked in the oven with some tomato sauce. Heavenly tasty!
