Ingredients

  • 1 jar (24 oz.) Classico® Marinara with Plum Tomatoes Pasta Sauce
  • 1 1/2 lb. zucchini, or about 3 or 4 small zucchinis
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided

Instructions

  1. Shred zucchini using the large holes of a box shredder, yielding about 4 cups. Place on paper towels and pat dry. In a large bowl, mix together zucchini, green onion, breadcrumbs, flour and eggs.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cup of zucchini mixture for each cake. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, turning halfway through, or until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil as needed. Serve with warm Pasta Sauce.
Tips
To serve as an appetizer, prepare smaller zucchini cakes using 1/8 cup of batter for each. Makes 24 appetizer servings. If desired, substitute Classico® Marinara with Plum Tomatoes & Olive Oil Pasta Sauce with Classico® Traditional Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce.

Awesome
by markiep

I made these last night and they were really good. I used Classico's carmelized onion and garlic marinara sauce. I made fettucini, put the cakes on top, sauce, then mozzarella cheese and my entire family enjoyed the dish.
