How To Make Zucchini Ravioli
- Prepare the zucchini strips and set them aside.
- Brown the beef (chicken, turkey, pork, or tofu) and seasonings until no longer pink. Drain the fat.
- Stir in the cream cheese (or ricotta) and some parmesan cheese (per recipe below).
- Make the raviolis by laying four zucchini strips in a star pattern, drop a scoop of filling in the center, and wrap the zucchini strips into a small bundle around the filling.
- Assemble casserole by spreading some pasta sauce in the bottom of the casserole dish and place raviolis in dish. Top with remaining sauce, mozzarella cheese and remaining parmesan.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and serve!
Zucchini Ravioli Variations
The sky is the limit here, but if staying low carb and keto is important stick with mix-ins like sliced black olives, green onions, shredded cabbage, diced mushrooms and lots of seasonings like roasted garlic, red pepper flakes, or Italian parsley.
Can It Be Frozen?
It’s best to freeze zucchini ravioli before baking it so it stays firm. Make the bundles and place them in an airtight zippered bag with the date labeled on it.
Allow them to thaw in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave and bake per recipe instructions. Be sure to add the cheese on the top and bake until golden brown and bubbly!
