Stuffed courgette with ground meat is a tasty and popular dish. However, I prefer a different version of this dish, served unusually. Courgette rolls are a recipe that will surprise your loved ones.

Courgette is a delightful vegetable—its taste is so versatile that it fits many dishes, even cakes. My latest discovery is rolls filling ground chicken breast with spices. The preparation is not difficult or time-consuming, and the dish is an exciting variation from classic recipes.

Courgette rolls with filling

Courgette rolls are great for a light lunch, but they will make the biggest splash as a warm appetiser at a party or dinner. I chose ground chicken breast for the filling, but you can also use ground pork shoulder or beef.

Courgette adds lightness and freshness to the dish, while the ground meat provides a satisfying source of protein. There's also cheese—everything tastes better with cheese.


  • 1 courgette,
  • 150 grams shredded mozzarella.


  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil,
  • ½ onion,
  • 1 garlic clove,
  • 250 grams of ground chicken breast,
  • 300 grams tomato purée,
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika,
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano,
  • 1 tsp salt,
  • ⅓ tsp pepper.

Preparation method:

Step 1. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the finely chopped onion. Once it becomes translucent, add the minced garlic and sauté for a moment. Add the ground chicken meat. When it is partially sautéed, season with sweet paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.

Step 2. Line a baking dish (approx. 25x35 cm) with parchment paper. Sprinkle the shredded cheese, creating a base. Arrange the courgette slices so that they overlap. Please place it in an oven at 200°C (392°F) and bake for 15 minutes.

Step 3. Spread the previously sautéed meat on the baked base. Roll the wrap tightly to make it compact and prevent it from falling apart.
