Antipasti: Stuffed courgette rolls

Do you know Gordon Ramsay? it is one of the "grands chefs" in England twisted. English cook is not the best of the world… twisted but at least, they have very good chiefs. And Gordon Ramsay is not one of these good looking chiefs with no personality like Jamie Oliver… Gordon is better, it does not chew its words: it is a kind of Jean Pierre Coffe a little younger, more dynamic and much more talented. When I returned from England, I thus brought back two cookbooks by Gordon Ramsay wink and my girlfriend tested (for me) one of the receipt: Stuffed courgette rolls


  • 4 small courgettes
  • olive oil
  • 250g of ricotta
  • juice of a half-lemon
  • salt pepper
  • sheets of basilica
  • pinion of pine
  • balsamic vinegar

Cut courgettes in length using a mandoline. Place them in a dish, sprinkle them of olive oil, salt, pepper and place in the fridge during 20 minutes.

Mix the ricotta with the lemon juice, a little olive oil and add salt and pepper as much as you want. Cook pinions of pine in a small frying pan… and add them to the mixture.

Form small balls of the mixture and to roll up them in the courgettes ribbons.

If after this receipt you do not want to know Gordon Ramsay… moreover one of its restaurants: Pétrus in Knightsbridge (London) received its second star with the Michelin guide.
