Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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