Zucchini Wraps


1 lb roughly two zucchini, sliced into 1/8” lengths                   2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil                                                                     1 tsp. fresh lime zest
8 oz. ricotta cheese                                                                      ½ tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
4 oz. fresh Parmesan cheese, grated                                          salt and pepper to taste
2 TBSP fresh mint, finely minced
In a medium bowl combine the cheeses, fresh mint, lime juice, zest and olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Using mandolin, carefully slice the zucchini lengthwise into 1/8” slices.  Drizzle the slices lightly with EVOO and season with salt and pepper.  Preheat a grill pan over medium heat, and grill both sides of each zucchini slice.  One at a time, lay the zucchini flat and spread a thin layer of the cheese mixture onto each slice.  Start with one end and roll up the zucchini in to small rolls and attach with a toothpick.  Keep plastic wrap on them and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve
