These Zucchini Alfredo Mini Roll Ups are the perfect bite sized appetizer! They are creamy and decadent but small enough to not make you feel overly full.
Creamy Zucchini Alfredo
Who doesn’t love a good Alfredo sauce?!
Probably the most indulgent sauce there is.
It’s creamy, rich and so darn tasty. Just give me a loaf of crusty bread alongside a bowl of Alfredo sauce and I’d be a happy girl!
The fettuccine that typically comes with an Alfredo sauce is just an added bonus but can be too heavy and leave me feeling bloated.
These Mini Roll Ups are my way around that without depriving you of the creamy goodness that makes an Alfredo sauce.
Mini Is the Way To Go!

Serving My Mini Alfredo Roll Ups
These can get a bit messy in the oven. It’s okay if some filling oozes out! “Oozing cheese” just adds to the presentation!
When these are out of the oven, scoop each mini roll up onto a serving platter and drizzle some more sauce on top!
Sprinkle some parsley on these babies and your guests will be drooling!
Here are the steps…
These creamy roll ups are bite-sized so they are easy to eat and you wont feel guilty about it after!
- 2 Small Zucchinis (small will give you the mini sized)
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 1/2 Cup Ricotta Cheese
- 1 Large Egg
- 3 Tbsp Basil (chopped thinly)
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Parsley
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- 2 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Clove Garlic
- 1 Cup Heavy Cream
- 1 1/2 Cup Parmigiana Cheese
- 1/4 Tsp White Pepper
- 1/8 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
- Good Pinch Nutmeg
Trim zucchini ends and using a mandolin or sharp knife, slice the zucchini lengthwise in ¼“ slices.
Lightly season with salt and pepper and grill zucchini well on one side. (grilling both sides may cause it to become too soft.) Getting good grill marks is key to both flavor and presentation so focus on one side!
In a small saucepan, sauté garlic and red pepper flakes in butter over medium heat for about a minute. Don't let garlic burn!
Add cream and let simmer until it begins to thicken. Turn off heat and add cheese, nutmeg and white pepper until combined. Set aside.
When ideal grill marks are achieved, place zucchini grilled side down on baking sheet and spread a spoonful of filling on each slice.
Roll zucchini gently and place end side down on baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 7-8 minutes.
Take out and place rolls on serving platter. Spoon alfredo sauce over and garnish with basil or parsley!
*Stuff and roll all zucchini ahead of time or the night before and place in fridge. Pop in oven before guests arrive.
*Keep sauce in fridge in pourable container and throw in microwave right before serving!
