Zuchinni Parmesan Puff Pastry VegetarianAppetizers “This is my go to appetizer- easy to prep in advance and requiring no last minute work. The saltiness of the parmesan balances out the sweet fruit of the Rose’ and really brings out the acidity in the wine. Both the appetizer and the Rose’ are the first to go at every party!” – Pennie Haase, National Marketing Director and Northeast Regional Sales Manager Ingredients: 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed 3 – 1” diameter 6” long young zucchini, sliced very thinly 3 cloves garlic, finely minced 1 tsp. dried thyme or fresh thyme 6 leaves of fresh basil, julienned Parmesan cheese, finely ground AVV olive oil Sea salt or kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Flour for dusting Method of Preparation: Dust work surface with flour, unfold puff pastry, lightly roll 11 x 10 ½”, cut into thirds along folds, place onto parchment lined baking sheet.
