These zucchini bites will go wonderfully with a cocktail outdoors this weekend! Similar to my recent Asparagus Tart, start by rolling out a sheet of defrosted store-bought puff pastry. Smother it with a layer of cheese (brie, goat, cream cheese, ricotta- anything creamy… grated cheese could work, too). Then use a peeler and peel slices of zucchini lengthwise to make ribbons. Lay the ribbons out over the cheese then sprinkle with chopped green onion (scallion), herbs (dried or fresh), coarse sea salt, pepper and olive oil. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 for about 20 minutes or until browned. Cut into bite sized pieces and serve warm or at room temperature.
Ingredients: 1 box puff pastry, one zucchini, 1 green onion, 1 package of creamy cheese, salt, pepper, herbs, olive oil.
