Pumpkin rolls stuffed with cheese

Pumpkin rolls stuffed with cheese

Cut the zucchini into slices, sprinkle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Leave them aside for 10-15 minutes to leave them out of the water. Separately mix the cheese (I always used a weak cheese in my diet, but you can use whatever you want) with crushed garlic, grated carrot, lemon peel, green parsley, add salt and pepper to taste and a little olive oil.

Prepare a grill pan and fry the zucchini slices, fill them with the cheese mixture, roll them and tie them with leek threads.

I served them with grated carrot sprinkled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, but they go very well with lettuce because we are still in season.

Have fun !!!

Cannelloni stuffed with broccoli, zucchini and grated cheese

With the last pumpkins from the garden that we took with us on vacation, we thought of cooking something new. We came up with the idea to fill cannelloni with broccoli and pumpkin. I washed the two pumpkins, one yellow and one green, which I had, cut them into cubes, removed the large seeds and boiled them in salted water. At the same time, in a frying pan I drew some broccoli in butter that I had put in the fridge to thaw in the morning. We added salt and thin slices of garlic (also from our harvest).

After the pumpkins were boiled, I drained them in a colander. When the broccoli bunches have softened enough to be cut with a fork, I put pumpkin, salt, pepper, oregano and olive oil on top and leave them on the fire for five minutes to combine the flavors. Then I added mozzarella and a type of Greek cheese called kefalograviera, very suitable for pasta.

The next step was more meticulous, respectively filling the cannelloni pasta with the composition described above. Don't forget to taste it beforehand, to make sure there is no need for salt or other spices. Turn the oven to 180 degrees to preheat.

Then followed & # 8220assembly & # 8221. I poured tomato sauce into the pan - do not skimp, because otherwise the pasta will not soften enough. I placed cannelloni next to each other, a short distance away, so that the sauce would reach everywhere and not stick to each other. I poured another round of tomato sauce on top and sprinkled both varieties of grated cheese.

I put the tray in the oven for about 45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. However, check after 30 minutes if the pasta has softened, it may be ready sooner. We really liked it. We hope you try this recipe and tell us how you like it!
