  • 16 ounces zucchini noodles

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ cups reduced-sodium marinara sauce

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese plus 2 tablespoons, divided


  1. Toss zucchini noodles with 1/2 teaspoon salt and place in a colander or metal strainer over a large bowl. Let the zucchini stand for 30 minutes to draw out excess moisture, then pat dry with a (non-terrycloth) cotton towel.

  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray or olive oil.

  3. Stir eggs, marinara and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a large bowl. Add the zucchini noodles and 1 cup mozzarella; stir until well combined and the noodles are evenly coated.

  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie pan and sprinkle evenly with the remaining 2 tablespoons mozzarella. Bake until the pie is puffed and sizzling around the edges and the center is no longer liquid, about 45 minutes.

  5. Let the pie rest for 10 minutes before slicing into 6 pieces and serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
