Baked Zucchini Roll ups stuffed with ground turkey, basil & fresh mozzarella! 230cal/13carb/7fat/25pro

50grams precooked extra lean ground turkey breast

6oz zucchini

1oz fresh mozzarella cheese

5grams grated parmesan cheese

50grams tomato sauce

1/4cup diced tomatoes

5 fresh basil leaves

Spices: fresh ground pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning mix, chili powder

 

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. While oven is heating up slice the zucchini into thin slices (mandolin recommended). 6 ounces of zucchini yielded 10 slices for me. Coat both sides with cooking spray & fresh ground pepper and roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Combine the tomatoes and tomato sauce in a small bowl and season to taste with the Italian seasoning, garlic & chili powder. Mix in the cooked ground turkey and set aside. Cut the cheese into 10 smaller pieces and the 5 basil leaves in half. Once the zucchini is out of the oven lower the temperature to 375 degrees. When the zucchini is cool enough to touch place a small amount of the turkey mixture at one end, 1 piece of cheese and half of a basil leaf. Carefully roll it up and place in oven safe dish. Repeat with 9 remaining slices. Top with the grated parmesan cheese and bake for 20 minutes.
