Sun Dried Tomato Italian Sushi


The well known versatile summer squash is wrapped raw around aromatic basil, sweet sun dried tomatoes, and creamy cheese. The smooth cream cheese compliments the freshest notes from the crisp zucchini and robust bite of sun dried tomatoes sprinkled throughout the roll. For excellent mild flavor select a smaller deeper green colored zucchini to to insure firm texture with little to no seeds. We love preparing this dish as a refreshing after school snack or a unique appetizer for dinner guests.
