Tag Archives: pesto



These little babies are one of my absolute favorite party treats! They’re both healthy and delicious, so no one’s going to have anything to say but “Thank you!” for bringing them. ;) Prepare them at home on your grill or bring the pesto mixture and your sliced zucchini and prepare them fresh on your friend grill! They’re so easy you can prepare them in minutes.



Combine a cup of basil leaves, a clove of garlic,  and a quarter cup of toasted pine nuts in a food processor, until well blended. Now, slowly pour a half cup of olive oil and 3/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese and pulse your food processor again. This pesto should be very thick.  (Feel free to season with salt and pepper to taste)

Thinly slice 6 zucchini length-wise and lightly brush them with olive oil. Again, feel free to season with a little salt and pepper here.    Place them on the grill till they are tender and marked on both sides. Then, let them cool. Once cooled, spread one tsp of the pesto mix on one side and roll them up. Secure it with a toothpick.
