  • Summary

    This could be a colorful appetizer, a light lunch or the perfect side dish next to grilled meats. It doesn’t need to be heated, the veggies are cooked already and besides it’s best served at room temperature anyway. I used the sturdy zucchini planks as the base then just layered everything else from that point on, saving the corn planks and kernels for the top. The ricotta mixture will act as the “glue” that will keep everything together and in place. A good dowse of olive oil and a swipe of rich balsamic glaze adds wonderful flavor and completes the presentation. A fun and a little different way to showcase what’s left of our summer’s bounties!

    Ingredients

    • Stick with vegetables that will lay flat, like peppers, eggplant and zucchini. I would not use small mushrooms or something like asparagus.
    • 2 ears of fresh corn, grilled and kernals and planks set aside.
    • 2 cups of ricotta, drained well
    • 3/4 cup of grated romano or to taste
    • a handful of fresh chopped basil
    • a handful of the fresh kernels, ( reserve most of the planks for the top)
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • olive oil
    • balsamic glaze
    • basil for garnish
