grilled zucchini roll-ups

These rolled-up delights were so flavorful and delicious!  They were the perfect side dish for a summer dinner.  Here are the ingredients you will need:

2-3 zucchini (on the smaller side)
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Goat Cheese (about ½ cup)
1 Tbs fresh parsley leaves, chopped
½ tsp lemon juice
1 cup of baby spinach leaves
fresh basil leaves

Begin by using a mandolin slicer to make long thin strips of zucchini.  Coat each side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Heat up your grill, about medium high.  When the grill is hot, cook the zucchini so that you get good grill marks on both sides.

Once the zucchini is cooked, set it aside and combine the ingredients for the stuffing.  For the goat cheese, blend together the parsley, lemon juice, and a little salt and pepper.

One by one, take a slice of zucchini, lay some spinach leaves and a few fresh basil leaves on top.  Take about a teaspoon of the goat cheese mixture and place it on the leaves.  Roll the zucchini up and place on a serving plate.  That is all there is to it. 
They are served cold so you can make them in advance and store in the fridge.  You could make them for an appetizer as well, and maybe even add either a shrimp or even a piece of sausage in the center.I have to say, not only do they taste delicious, but they look amazing!  Enjoy......
