Pesto Zucchini Rolls
Not only are these appetizers incredibly simple, they're delicious and pretty. Make up a batch or two for your next party and let the compliments roll in. For a little extra color on the table, consider using some summer squash in place of some of the zucchini. For a stiffer pesto, start with part of the oil and drizzle in until you've reached the desired consistency.
