Cheesy Zucchini Noodle Bake


- 3 Medium Zucchinis

- 1 egg

- 1/2 cup low fat ricotta cheese

- 2 garlic cloves minced

- 1/4 cup diced red onion

- 2 tbs good quality olive oil

- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan (save 1/4 cup to top)

- 1/2 cup low fat mozzarella

- 1/4 cup fine wheat bran

- pinch of salt and pepper


(1) Preheat oven to 350F,

(2) In a small bowl, mix the egg, ricotta, garlic, red onion, olive oil, 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, wheat bran, salt and pepper, mix thoroughly,

(3) Spiralize the zucchini using a spiralizer (if you don’t have a spiralizer, then you can just chop up your zucchini into small cubes),

(4) In a large bowl, add the zucchinis and the ricotta mixture,

(5) Add the zucchini ricotta mixture to a greased 8x8 baking dish (or a dish like I have pictured),

(6) Top the mixture with the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and the mozzarella cheese,

(7) Bake for 30 minutes at 350F, then raise the temperature to 450F and bake for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and golden (this is great to make ahead and then before you serve it you can bake it at 450F for 5-7 minutes to melt the cheese right before you serve it)
