Pesto Zucchini Roll Ups (print here)

Makes 13x9in pan

Ingredients:

2 medium zucchinis

1 small onion, diced

1 cup kale, thinly sliced

1 cup spinach

1 pounds ground beef

3/4 cup of your fav pesto

1 tbsp. ghee

salt to taste

Tomato Topping:

1 can tomato paste (6 oz)

1 can diced tomatoes

1 tsp. mint

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

 

Optional: Shredded cheese

 

Directions:

  1. Slice zucchinis into strips (we used a mandolin but I think you could use a y-shaped vegetable peeler).
  2. Cook the ground beef and set aside
  3. In a large saucepan, add the ghee and onions. Cook until browned. Add the kale and spinach to wilt. Add the meat back into the mixture
  4. Add the pesto and stir to completely coat, then add salt to taste if needed and set mixture aside
  5. Mix together the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, mint and Italian seasoning
  6. Place three zucchini strips so that they slightly overlap. Put about ¼ cup of the mixture onto the strips and roll them up. Place them seem down in the pan. Repeat until all zucchini is used
  7. If you have extra meat mixture pour on top. Then plop the tomato mixture on top and spread with the back of a spoon
  8. Place into a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes
