These bites are the perfect mixture of flavours old and new: an aged Gorgonzola filling surrounded with slices of fresh grilled zucchini and brightened up with lemon zest.

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 24 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 zucchini (about 1 kg), cut lengthwise in 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-smooth ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola Piccante cheese
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (optional)

Method

Brush zucchini with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; grill, uncovered, turning occasionally, until zucchini are tender and grilled-marked, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to platter; let cool.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together ricotta, Gorgonzola Piccante, almonds and lemon zest (if using). Spoon 1 tsp of the cheese mixture onto narrow end of 1 zucchini slice. Roll up zucchini and secure with toothpick. Repeat with remaining cheese mixture and zucchini. Arrange on platter and serve. 

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Assemble and refrigerate these rolls one day ahead. Bring to room temperature before serving.
