I came across this recipe a while ago but roma tomatoes were not in season so I bookmarked it so that I could try it later. Now that roma tomatoes are in season I got to try it. I replaced the chervil in the original recipe with basil leaves and left them whole rather than mixing them up with the cheese. It takes a bit of time to oven roast the tomatoes but otherwise this recipe is really simple. The zucchini wraps were really good and with oven roasted tomatoes and goats cheese how could they not?
