  2. Wash the zucchini and cut off the tips. Using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer, cut the zucchini into long strips (about 0,5 cm high). Brush with some olive oil and grill on a cast iron, frying pan with thick bottom or a barbecue. Set aside and let cool down completely.
  3. For the filling: mix ricotta cheese with egg, grated parmesan and thyme. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Roll out the dough into a 2 to 3 mm thick disc. Move the disc onto a round baking tray covered with baking paper. Add your ricotta mix and spread it evenly.
