sneak peak

Is peek-a- boo, the right spelling? Then its sneak a peek. Here are some zucchini rolls that I tried for the first time. This was last year..click if you dare (should I spell some other word wrong to entice debby and tanya?)



ready for grilling



on the grill pan



lightly grilled

The rolls were stuffed with fresh ricotta and a tangy sheeps milk romano then a swift grate of nutmeg and salt and pepper...oh and the zuchini bits that were too awkward to roll were chopped up with some garlic and mixed with the cheeses.

UPDATE:



This is the salad I made out of the rolls topped with a salsa of grape tomatoes and fresh corn in a quick shower of homemade vinegar and sea salt.

z-bites ... I like that name for them

It took me a while to figure out what "wala" meant, and after I did, I thought you didn't know how to spell it. Now I've caught on.

Dragonfly Dreaming said...

Zucchini with ricotta..mmm! I kinda feel I should add something more to the stuffing. Any suggestions?

doggybloggy said...

snow: these are so good I cant stop making them..

joy: z-bites is a great name - that snowelf is such a word wizard

claudia: the recipe is in the description...zucchini sliced thin, cheese mixture - roll up and cook...if you need quantities e mail me.

coco: these have ricotta, romano, nutmeg, garlic and bits of zucchini as well as salt and pepper - maybe some mozzerella would be good
