Prosciutto Zucchini Bites


  • 4 small or 2 medium zucchini, sliced lengthwise into very thin ribbons
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 6 ounces goat cheese (or 6 ounces ricotta)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, plus more for serving
  • 2 teaspoons honey, plus more for serving
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 10 thin slices prosciutto, sliced in half lengthwise

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a large bowl, toss the zucchini ribbons with olive oil and a pinch each of salt & pepper.

Step 3: In a small bowl, stir together the goat cheese, thyme, honey, lemon zest, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and a pinch each of salt & pepper.

Step 4: Working with one at a time, lay out a zucchini ribbon on a clean work surface.  Spoon 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture onto one end and roll up the ribbon.  Wrap a piece of prosciutto around the zucchini to secure.  Place the rolls stem side down on the prepared baking sheet.  Repeat with the remaining zucchini ribbons.

Step 5: Bake until the prosciutto is crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. The rolls are going to ooze a bit; this is okay. Let them sit on the baking sheet for 6 minutes before serving them sprinkled with fresh thyme and drizzled with honey.
