Davida and her friend, Chava, made delicious calzones for Melave Malke a few weeks ago: Davida’s Easy and Delicious Calzones for a Melave Malka Feast. Although the calzones looked and smelled heavenly, Don and I were only able to enjoy them vicariously. Since we are still on low-carb diets, we needed to find an alternative cheesy dish.
We scrubbed zucchini, cut them is half logs and roasted them for 12-15 minutes . Once roasted, we scooped out some of the pulp and then filled them with cheese. We put them into the oven for 5-10 minutes more and voila!
These will make a perfect and simple low-carb recipe for Shavuos (Countdown to Shavuos: Floral Inspirations and Dairy Recipes). Enjoy!
2 medium size zucchini
shredded mozzarella cheese
spaghetti sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Scrub unpeeled zucchini and trim ends. Slice zucchini in half lengthwise, creating four half-logs. Place skin-side up on roasted pan lined with parchment or foil and roast for 15-20 minutes.
Scoop some pulp out of each zucchini half-log, creating a shallow well for cheese. Spread sauce and cheese on top of each zucchini half-log. Roast in oven for 5-10 minutes more until cheese is melted and golden. Enjoy!
