Appetizers (aprox. 8 pieces)
- 1 medium sized zucchini
- 2 teaspoons pesto (or finely chopped fresh basil leaves)
- a round piece of mozzarella (around 125 g)
- the juice from 1/2 lemon
- salt and pepper
- 8 toothpicks
Wash and remove the peal off the zucchini (not entirely, but just the hard peal from the top, that you don’t want to eat).
Then slice it horizontally, into long thin slices. You’ll obtain about 8 nice slices out of a regular zucchini.
Heat a grilling pan and grill them about 2 minutes on each side.
In the meantime, mix in a small bowl the pesto with the lemon juice and some salt and pepper.
Cut the mozzarella into eight equal pieces.
When the zucchini are done and still warm, spread over each one a bit of the pesto/lemon mix, add a piece of mozzarella and roll in. Then keep the roll in place with a toothpick.
