(For 12 rolls of 4 slices & # 8211 suitable for 4-6 people)

2 pieces of medium-thick pumpkin

200 g cottage cheese / ricotta

120 g cheese (mozzarella) finely chopped

1 teaspoon chopped (fresh) mint

1 clove garlic given by the press or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

150 g bechamel sauce & # 8211 from the total amount of sauce prepared below

For tomato sauce:

1 teaspoon grated dried thyme

2 cloves of garlic given through the press

For bechamel sauce:

For starters I prepared the bechamel sauce, as shown here.

I brought the milk to the boil, then took it off the heat. I melted the butter in a bowl with slightly higher walls. When it started to sizzle, I added flour, mixed well and let it harden easily, without coloring. I poured the milk gradually, I dissolved the flour, I seasoned it with salt, pepper and ground nutmeg and I let it boil until the sauce started to have consistency.

I washed the pumpkins very well, dried them, then sliced ​​them with a full length mandolin.

I marinated them with salt and olive oil, greasing each layer on a large plate. I left them for 30 minutes, during which time I prepared the tomato sauce and the filling.

I hardened the finely chopped onion in the hot oil, then I added the tomato juice, salt, pepper, sugar, thyme and two cloves of garlic given through the press, then I let it boil over low heat, with a lid, for about 10 minutes.

When it was ready, I poured it into the heat-resistant dish in which I was going to put them in the oven. I chose a large yena vessel: 35 * 22 cm.

To prepare the filling, I mixed cottage cheese with cheese, 150 g of bechamel sauce and an egg, then seasoned with salt, garlic powder, oregano and mint.

I mixed until the composition was homogenous.

I prepared my slices of zucchini to be rolled: I superimposed 4 slices of zucchini leaving a distance of 3-4 mm between them, as seen in the picture below.

I put a spoonful of filling and rolled, then I put them over the tomato juice.

Over each roll of pumpkin with cheese I put a tablespoon of the remaining cheese, and over the cheese a tablespoon of bechamel sauce prepared at the beginning of the recipe.

I baked the pumpkin rolls with cheese in the oven for 40 minutes at 180 ° C, but depending on the strength of the oven, you will leave it until the bechamel sauce starts to brown slightly.

God, they smelled good when I took them out of the oven!

I could hardly resist taking pictures of them.
