40 minutes
Serves 6
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/3 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 oz soft goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 24 whole basil leaves
  • Tomato sauce, for serving

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

Remove both ends from zucchini. Use a mandolin to slice zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 ” thick slices. Lightly brush each side of zucchini slices with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

In batches, place zucchini on grill in a single layer. Cook for about 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet to cool completely.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine cheeses, mint, minced basil, salt, and pepper.

To assemble, spread a thin layer of herbed cheese on a strip of zucchini. Place a whole basil leaf at one end of the zucchini, and starting at that end, roll up the zucchini. Repeat with remaining zucchini.
