Zucchini Marinara Subs

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

This is one of my new favorite things to make with zucchini.  It’s just like a meatball sub but instead of meatballs it’s zucchini.  These zucchini marinara subs are much healthier than a meatball sub but it is just as tasty.  I got the idea for this recipe from one I found on allrecipes.com.

It is simple to put together and is a great vegetarian meal.  I made these zucchini marinara subs for my lunch one day and had enough for my lunch for the next few days.  I served this up on a delicious crusty whole wheat sub roll I purchased from the bakery at my local Smith’s.  They were 33 cents each.  I am in love with this sub.  You could always add some more marinara sauce to the zucchini mixture and end up with a great sauce to go over some pasta too.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium zucchini diced (cut lengthwise into fourths and the diced into 1/2 inch chunks)
  • 2 mushroom sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¾ - 1 cup marinara sauce depending on how saucy you want it
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 6 inch crusty French or Italian sandwich rolls, split

Instructions
 

  • In a skillet over medium heat, fry the zucchini and mushrooms in olive oil until browned and  tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add garlic to mixture and sauté for 1 min. Stir in the marinara sauce and cook until sauce is heated.
  • Place a slice of cheese on each roll and broil in oven until cheese is melted. (remember my tip about broiling - leave the rack in the center of the oven, don't move it up and no burnt roll that is as long as you keep you eye on it)
  • Divide zucchini mixture evenly between the four rolls and enjoy.

  9. My garden has been putting out zucchini like crazy and I’ve been scrambling for new things to make with it. This is a great idea and I will definitely be trying it soon. Thanks!
