The crepe roll stuffed with zucchini is a tasty and inviting main course, perfect to amaze and delight guests for a festive lunch or a special occasion. Although the preparation may appear a bit elaborate, actually it is very simple; you just need to make the classic crepes, stuff them with zucchini and cheeses, then roll them up and cut them into slices. Finally, you just have to sprinkle them with a few flakes of butter, a sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese and put all in the oven to brown, for a golden and super stringy final result. So let’s find out how to make crepe roll stuffed with zucchini by following our recipe step by step.

Tips

– With the doses of this recipe you will get 4 crepes of about 26 cm in diameter or 8 of 22-24 cm. For a perfect result, the batter must be smooth and free of lumps. Sift the flour, before incorporating it into the eggs, and, if necessary, blend the mixture with an immersion blender to make it even smoother.

– If you wish, you can flavor the ricotta cheese cream with a pinch of nutmeg and some finely chopped aromatic herbs. For this recipe we have chosen to use a more delicate cow's milk ricotta cheese, but if you want a more intense taste you can also choose ricotta cheese of sheep or goat, more digestible even in case of intolerance to dairy products.

– Tasty and versatile, you can fill your stuffed crepes roll with other vegetables, such as spinach or chard, but also with scamorza cheese, mozzarella cheese or emmental instead of provola cheese.
