Zucchini rolls with mozzarella, spinach & raw tomato sauce

Ingredients for 2 persons:

  • 2 zucchinis
  • dried oregano & basil
  • 125 g mozzarella, cut in small pieces
  • 1 jar olive paste
  • 150 g spinach
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 garlic clove
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

For the raw tomato sauce:

  • 2 tomatos, remove the peel and seeds
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • balsamic vinegar
  • olive oil
  • fresh basil and flat-leaved parsley
  • salt & pepper
  • couple of black olives (remove pits)


  • Slice de zucchini in long slices, make sure they're not too thin. Put them in a oven dish. Pour a little bit of olive oil and rub those babies in. Season with salt and pepper, dried oregano en dried basil. Put the dish 10 minutes in the oven (170 °C)
  • Put a little bit of olive oil in a pan, fry the garlic and shallot. Add the spinach, when it has shrunk, it's done.
  • For the tomato sauce: mix all the required ingredients, except for the olives in a blender. Make sure the sauce isn't completely blend, you want small "bits and pieces" in the sauce. Cut the olives in pieces and ad them to the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Time to make the rolls! Put some olive paste, a bit of spinach, and pieces of mozzarella on a zucchini slice. Roll it up and put it in the oven dish. Don't fill them up too much! Put the dish for 10 more minutes in the oven till the mozzarella has melted.
  • Serve the zucchini rolls with the raw tomato sauce. Serve with a little bit of parmesan cheese.
