Mozzarella & Pepper Courgettes Recipe, The Mummy ToolboxCourgettes (or zuccini’s) are so useful, you can eat them raw or cooked, Grate them, chop them or as I have recently found out, grill them.

I have combined my love of cheeses with my need to eat more vegetables, to create this easy recipe that requires minimal preparation and is ready in under 10 minutes.Β 

And let’s not forget it is tasty too!

These are the perfect appetizerΒ that come in handy yet filling bites that would be perfect to make in bulk since they are so quick to make and they are easy to “mass produce” for party food!

Now lets get on to the best bit!


*I made one batch in the pictures but this recipe makes 3 batches and would serve around 3*

Mozzarella – 1 ball – (Around 150g Drained)

3 courgettes


The Recipe

Heat the pan – This is important to make sure it’s as quick – otherwise it takes longer to cook

‘Top and Tail” the courgettes and cut them into quarters, then drain and cut the mozzarella into pieces to fit onto the courgettes

(if you make them too big the mozzarella melts over the sides and goes everywhere! – this is the voice of experience!)

If the mozzarella hasn’t melted completely leave them in for another minute – be wary that mozzarella doesn’t take long to burn so take care.

Serve and Enjoy!

  1. Ah what a tasty dish! I love courgettes but don’t eat enough of them. Must give these a try.

    Thanks so much for sharing it at #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again in Sunday. X

  2. These look fabulous! I LOVE mozzarella. This would be fantastic to make for a party, as I’m always looking for healthier party food options. I don’t want to just have chips and dip. I like the effect of the diagonal lines on those too! My favorite recipe with mozzarella is probably pizza. My hubby makes it sometimes. πŸ™‚

  3. These look amazing! I love your funky grill lines πŸ™‚ I don’t eat cheese any more but i’m sure I could adapt this somehow, it’s made me hungry! x

  4. Hi Charlotte, what a great idea for an easy vegetable dish. My daughter and I love zucchini (the boys not so much), but they may like this preparation! Thanks for sharing.

    And congrats on the launch of your link party! Well done you!

    Hugs, Lynn

  5. I love mozzarella! I never know what creative things to do with courgettes though. I tend to steam them or stir fry them. I’m definitely going to try this recipe! Thanks for hosting #YumTum x
