Tasty Eats | Zucchini Ravioli

I will preface this recipe post by saying...it was hard but totally worth it!! It's probably the most labor intensive recipe I've ever attempted - but the outcome was mouthwatering  good!!

 Spinach Zucchini Ravioli adapted from this recipe.
Zucchini Ravioli
Ingredients
Ground Turkey
2 cups of Spinach
1/2 large onion - I chopped up the full onion
2 cloves of garlic - I used already minced garlic
Tomato Marinara Sauce - I used Pasta Sauce
2 Zucchini's - We needed to get more since our peeling wasn't too good
Not pictured - Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese - the recipe didn't call for this, but you can't have ravioli without cheese!! 

Before you start with the ingredients - you need to peel your zucchini. We used a potato peeler - but any peeler will do. A trick is to square off the sides of the zucchini so it's easier to cut! It'll take some practice and hopefully the zucchini doesn't fly like it did in our kitchen, but once you've completed this there is only one more hard part to this recipe!
Zucchini Recipes
You'll need 4 zucchini strips for each "ravioli" - so once you feel like you've peeled enough go ahead and put the garlic, spinach, ground turkey & onion into a wok to cook.

Once it's all cooked - you're ready to spoon about a TBSP to 2 TBSP's of the mixture into the middle of your zucchini slices.

Don't mind the blurriness in the photo - that just happens to be the steam :)
Zucchini Recipes
Fold your zucchini ravioli into squares and place into baking dish!! Make sure you spray the bottom of your dish so that it doesn't stick & is easy to wash afterwards! Once you've done this - you're home free and the rest is easy peasy! 
Zucchini Recipes
Pour your sauce on the top and spread evenly - you can add cheese if you want to - that was a must for me!! Place in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!

Once it's cooled - enjoy!! 

Just two helpful hints!
1. Buy some extra zucchini just in case - We ended up completely botching the first one we tried to peel
2. It's going to take some patience to roll the zucchini into squares - so don't try to over stuff it
Aside from being almost 100% guiltless - this is most certainly a man approved meal!!

  8. I am very impressed! Did the zucchini get watery when you baked it or did it stay pretty crispy? I am cracking up thinking of those things flying around your kitchen! Sounds like something that would totally happen to me!

  10. Yum this looks so delicious!! I have a mandolin and I bet it would make it a lot easier to get thin zuchinni strips. I always have things flying around my kitchen when I cook. My husband says I'm the messiest cook! He's just bitching bc he has to do all the cleaning! Haha

    Life as I know it

  11. Nice work, and good for you for taking the time. Peeling zucchini can definitely be a little challenging for sure!! Even though I prefer traditional ravioli, this looks pretty good. :-) Thanks for sharing lady!!

    i am confused about the peeling of the zucchinis though, i will have to watch a youtube video on how to do it haha.

  20. YUM I love zucchini!! I'll definitely have to try this recipe out! When I'm feeling ambitious....hahaha

  21. This is amazing!!!! Did you use the peeler to cut the strips that you used for the noodles too, or just to get the skin off? I've recently decided I eat WAY too much pasta/rice/carbs, so this is such a good way to make something I love without that!

    ReplyDelete

  47. This looks SO good! Zucchini is one of my favorite foods! I wonder if it'd be good if I substituted the meat for quinoa or something along those lines...?

  52. I have so many Zucchini right now, this sounds like an amazing new way to eat them. I'm always looking for new ways to eat them. Although I'll probably add goat cheese or something to the turkey mix, just to make it a little less healthy.

    Thanks for sharing!
