Zucchini Ravioli, The Easiest Homemade Ravioli Ever!
- 3 small to medium green zucchini or yellow squash
- 2 cups fresh spinach , chopped
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic , minced
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 2 8- ounce containers Kite Hill ricotta (dairy-free) OR regular dairy ricotta, very well drained in cheesecloth if using dairy ricotta
- 1 jar marinara sauce of your choice
- Brazil nut parmesan (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, Lightly oil a 9 x 13 cooking dish and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix ricotta, chopped spinach, olive oil, garlic, basil and oregano. Set aside.
Slice zucchini into long, thin strips using a Y peeler , carrot peeler or mandolin.
On a flat surface (I use a large cutting board), lay out four strips of zucchini in a crosshatch pattern. Think of potholder-style weaving. Place a dollop of filling in the center. Fold the side to close the zucchini, then turn over so the top side is facing downward in the baking dish.
Repeat until all zucchini has been used. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.
While ravioli is baking, warm sauce and make Brazil nut parmesan if desired.
Remove the ravioli from the baking dish using a spatula. Three makes a nice meal here, you may prefer more or less. Top each ravioli with a spoonful of sauce and a sprinkle of Brazil nut parmesan.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do. It’s perfect for Summer when zucchini is so abundant!

I can’t get this recipe off my mind! So pretty and clearly divine! I see it in my near future. 🙂
I really enjoy making this. It looks fancy but is so simple to make, especially compared to rolling out homemade pasta dough. I hope you’ll give it a go!
Would this be good with yellow squash instead? I have a lot and need to use it up!
Yes! I use yellow squash and zucchini interchangeably in so many recipes. This would be a great use for yellow squash. Enjoy!

I am a diabetic and my husband is a heart patient so this recipe is just great for us. No pasta is the best for us. I make my own Marinara sauce and I use low-fat ricotta cheese. Thanks for sharing this recipe with all of us. It is so great with the tomato, onion and cucumber salad. God bless you and have a blessed day!
I love hearing this, Kay! You’ve made my day!
