  2. Cut the zucchini lengthwise, into ¼-inch thick slices until you have a total of 12 slices about the same size. It’s easiest to do this with a mandolin.

  3. Season both sides of the zucchini with ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper, then grill on a grill pan over high heat for about 2 minutes on each side to help dry out the zucchini, until pliable and grill marks form, but not fully cooked.

  4. In a medium bowl, beat the egg then mix together with ricotta, Pecorino Romano, basil, garlic, 1/8 tsp salt and ⅛ teaspoon of pepper.

  5. Spread the ricotta mixture (about 1½ tablespoons each) evenly onto each zucchini slice, spreading to cover.

  6. Roll up slices and arrange them each seam side down in the prepared dish. Top each with 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce and 1 tablespoon of mozzarella cheese and tightly cover with foil.

  7. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is hot and melted.
