Recipe Tips

Size WiseEnjoy eating appetizers at a social occasion but be mindful of portion size so you don’t overdo it on calories.

How To Easily Cut the ZucchiniTrim and discard both ends of zucchini. Cut zucchini lengthwise in half. Use mandoline to cut 1/8-inch-thick slices from zucchini halves. Discard the outer slices since they will be too narrow for making the roll-ups. If you do not have a mandoline, you can instead use a vegetable peeler or cheese slicer to cut the zucchini into slices. Just place the zucchini halves, cut sides down, on a flat work surface. Pull vegetable peeler or cheese slicer lengthwise down zucchini halves to get the slices. Discard the first 1 or 2 slices since they will be too narrow to prepare these roll-ups.

Special ExtraSpread 1/2 tsp. basil pesto onto each cracker before topping with roll-ups, sauce and Parmesan cheese as directed.
