How to prepare Zucchini roll

To prepare zucchini roll, start by grating the caciocavallo cheese 1 and the thoroughly washed and dried zucchini, with a large-holed grater 2. Place the eggs and caciocavallo cheese in a bowl 3.

Add the zucchini, the thyme 5, the salt and the pepper too 6. Stir to amalgamate the mixture.

Line a rectangular 14x11 inch tray with parchment paper, grease the bottom with a little oil 7 and pour in the mixture 8. Wash, dry and thinly slice another zucchini 9.

Decorate the surface of the frittata with the zucchini slices 10. Flavor with thyme 11 and pepper 12 and bake in a static oven preheated to 356°F (180°C) for around 25 minutes.

Remove the base from the oven 13 and turn it over on a cutting board to remove the parchment paper 14. Leave to cool (at room temperature for half an hour, or in the refrigerator for 15 minutes). Prepare the filling: place the drained ricotta and Grana cheese in a bowl 15.

Season with the salt, pepper and a little oil 16, then stir. Once the base has cooled, spread the ricotta mixture over the surface of the frittata 18. Add the arugula to taste 18.

Complete the filling with the drained tomatoes and a handful of toasted almond shards 19. Roll it up 20 and leave to firm in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve you zucchini roll 21.


You can store zucchini roll in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap, for up to 2 days. Freezing is not recommended.


The resting time in the refrigerator is not necessary, but it does make the roll firmer to the cut.
