Simple Cheesy Zucchini Logs: Gluten Free and Low-Carb

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!

zucchini logs-up close



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!
