  3. Sprinkle with more oil and balsamic; cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Can be prepared up to 6 hrs ahead.
  4. Mix the ricotta with lemon juice and seasoning to taste.
  5. mix in the basil and pine nuts.
  6. Place 1 tsp of the ricotta mixture onto one end of a courgette strip and roll up.
