Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Zucchini rolls stuffed with ricotta (Involtini di zucchine)

    • Foodelf on March 27, 2013

      Delicious, delightful and works both as an appetizer or lunch. All the components may be prepared in advance and assembly is very easy. The mandoline makes slicing the zucchini a breeze. I used my grill pan to sear the zucchini slices - everything came together beautifully. You could easily used your own favourite tomato sauce, but this one is sweetly simple and makes the dish sing. I'm looking forward to using zucchini from the garden and will add some chives to the filling next time.

      Based on Foodelf's review, I tried this and it was a great success. Perfect for a light first course or as a side. I'd recommend following the recipe for the tomato sauce. It's delicious.
