    • 3-4 large zucchini
    • 1 tbsp Wild Harvest olive oil
    • 1 yellow onion, finely diced
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 lb Wild Harvest Plant Based Ground
    • 24 oz marinara sauce, divided
    • 1 tbsp Wild Harvest Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
    • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
    • 1 tbsp Wild Harvest fresh oregano, finely chopped
    • 2 tbsp Wild Harvest fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 cup shredded plant-based mozzarella cheese
    • Wild Harvest Fresh basil for garnish


    1. Preheat oven to 375F.
    2. Using a mandolin, slice zucchini into long, thin strips, about ⅛” thick.
    3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes, until softened. Add garlic and continue cooking for 1 minutes. Add Wild Harvest plant based ground and break apart with a wooden spoon, cooking until browned (5-7 minutes).
    4. Add in half (12 oz) of the marinara, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano and parsley and stir well. Remove from heat.
    5. Line the bottom of a baking dish with a few spoonfuls of marinara sauce.
    6. To make the roll ups, place the zucchini strip on a flat surface, then add about 2 tbsp of filling lengthwise down the strip. Roll it up tightly, then place in the baking dish and repeat. Top with remaining marinara sauce and sprinkle with cheese.
    7. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes to crisp up the cheese if desired.
