Zavioli with Spinach and Ricotta
August 17, 2017

Looked so pretty it was almost a shame to eat this healthy meal! No mandolin? Use a potato peeler. I also recommend using 4 strips per Zavioli, this required 4 small zucchinis but made for easier wrapping and by placing them seam down in the baking dish there was no need for toothpicks (Yield: 15 large Zaviolis.) I was missing the ingredients for the pesto and omitted the egg (personal preference). Instead, I cooked the spinach with minced garlic, pepper & Italian seasoning, drained well then mixed with light ricotta. This paired amazingly well with Marinara. I dabbed each Zavioli with Marinara and topped with some shredded Light Mozzarella and baked for an extra 5 minutes. Unlike other reviewers I did not find it watery at all, though I did place strips on paper towel and drained the ricotta. This was such a hit the only disappointment was the lack of leftovers!
