Fabulous appetizer recipe! Grilled Zucchini stuffed with herb goat cheese and pimento - Low Calorie, Low Fat, Healthy perfect for a party

This week’s Sunday Supper was a 5 ingredient challenge.  If you are looking at the list and see seven, what?  That is because oil, salt and pepper did not count.  I  know it is a huge advantage to have those two free items.  It worked out perfect for a recipe I have been meaning to make for quite a while.  We are a cheese loving family.  Any get-together has to involve cheese and lots of it.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Rolls are a scrumptious way to enjoy a little cheese in a healthier, and may I add “cute”, little bundle.  They are also seriously simple.  This is one dish you want to use a mandolin.  You can cut the zucchini by knife but it is hard to cut them exactly 1/8 inch thick.  A mandolin can accomplish this in seconds.  Fun, fun, fun.  Light up the grill and throw the zucchini on.  Don’t walk away.  These zucchini are paper thin and will cook in a minute or two.  Woo hoo.

Next, mix up your cream cheese and goat cheese and spread it on.  Try not to eat the cheese mixture while you are doing this.  You are going to want to.  This is going to take some willpower.  It is also a little messy. Grilled zucchini is a little slippery and I ended with goat cheese all over my fingers.  Oh what a shame!  Next sprinkle on some finely chopped pimento and roll them up.  I like to add a drop or two of balsamic glaze or a really thick aged balsamic.  This is the step that pulls it all together.   That is it.  You are ready to serve.  I like to serve them at room temperature, so make them an hour or two ahead.  Ready, set, make Goat Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Rolls now.
