Irresistible zucchini rolls
  • 4 medium zucchini
  • 5 slices of loaf bread (better if whole wheat)
  • 6 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 to 6 sage leaves
  • salt
  • pepper
  • a couple of Tbsp of pine nuts
  • extra virgin olive oil (about ¼ cup or less)
  1. Put a large pan with water to boil (it has to be big enough to contain the sliced zucchini).
  2. Wash the zucchini and slice them lenghtwise using a mandoline.
  3. When the water boils, add salt and the sliced zucchini. Let them boil for a couple of minutes - they just have to be soft enough to be rolled. Do not overcook them. Strain them on a colander.
  4. Turn on the oven to 400°F/200°C.
  5. Put the bread, cheese, sage, salt and pepper into your food processor and turn it on until it all becomes well mixed breadcrumbs.
  6. Toast the pine nuts on a non adherent pan (pay attention as they burn quickly).
  7. Take each slice of zucchini and brush both sides with extra virgin olive oil.
  8. Pass each one onto the breadcrumbs on both sides and them enroll each one on itself adding 3 or 4 toasted pine nuts inside. Hold it with a toothpick.
  9. Put them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake until colored.
  10. Buon appetito!
