Tonight I decided to try something new. I have used zucchini for lasagna noodles, but nothing else. Well, tonight I made Zucchini Ravioli. Everyone loved it. The kids had no idea they were eating zucchini. If they did, they wouldn’t eat it. I’ve been gradually sneaking more and more vegetables into their meals in an effort to get us all eating healthier. Anyway. this recipe is a keeper. I found the recipe on Pinterest. But you can find the recipe at Momsdish.
I did have to change the recipe a bit. I did not have ricotta cheese. So I had to substitute. Instead of ricotta for the filling, I used 1 cup finely chopped (not quite puréed) zucchini and 1 cup Italian blend shredded cheese. I also used the Italian blend on top. It was still cheesy and creamy in the middle. No one had any idea there was zucchini in the filling either. I just told them it was a cheese blend that I used for the middle. It was not a lie. Cheese was blended with zucchini and seasonings. This is a good dish for kids because everyone loves ravioli. This is much better than anything from a can! I can promise you that!!
