Preparation of cucumber lasagna

  1. First, prepare the tomato mousse: peel the onion and cut it into thin strips. Brown the onion in a pan with the basil and a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. When the onion is well softened, add the tomato puree, lower the heat and cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Once the cooking time has elapsed, add the egg whites, egg yolks and parmesan, mix with the whisk to obtain a sort of foam.
  4. Clean and clean the courgettes, then cut them into cubes and brown them in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the courgettes just long enough to soften them, then turn off the heat and let them cool.

Make a new layer of mousse, cucumber and finish with a final layer of courgettes. Decorate with toasted pine nuts and sprinkle with fresh dill.
