Summer Squash Roll-Ups

That overabundant, peak-harvest moment of summer always brings zucchini and summer squash into the limelight. What do we do with it all!? Here’s a lovely, elegant idea that takes no time or trouble once you slice Shenot Farm‘s produce and sprinkle the dish with Blackberry Meadows Farm bacon. It’s downright delicious.

SUMMER SQUASH ROLL-UPS RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
1 tsp salt
1 cup ricotta cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan
1 egg
1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
3-4 strips of bacon, fried crisp and crumbled, optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Using a mandolin, thinly slice zucchini and squash lengthwise into long ribbons. Place into a Ziplock back with 1 teaspoon salt and let sit for 20 minutes (this will allow the squash to become pliable and will keep the pieces from breaking while rolling up).
  2. In a bowl, evenly mix the remaining ingredients. Line up each ribbon of squash flat on a plate, spread 1 tablespoon of filling evenly over each ribbon, roll up, and place in a baking pan. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan.
  3. Broil for 10-12 minutes until the filling is cooked through and the tops start to brown, then serve.
