Mushroom, Onion, Red Pepper Stuffed Zucchini Ravioli
I love italian food. Whenever I go out to eat at an italian restaurant, I always look for ravioli. I love trying new things! Last weekend, I tried Ravioli Di Portobello. It was delicious! I can't believe I had never had it before! I had a day off today and I wanted to make something new. I loved the ravioli so much, that I went out to buy portabella mushrooms. It's funny because growing up my mom never incorporated mushrooms in her cooking. So I was always hesitant to try anything with mushrooms...and now I absolutely love them.
In addition to mushrooms, I added some red pepper, onions, and garlic. I was on pinterest one night and stumbled upon this recipe by CupcakesOMG! For a vegan recipe, you can exclude any cheese. I decided to add some shredded mozzarella in mine, but you can substitute with any of your favorite veggie, meat, and cheese fillings! If I were to make this again, I would add spinach in the filling as well. Maybe incorporate the veggies in spinach pesto.
Anyway, so what I did was just sauteed the veggies & garlic in 2 tsp. olive oil.
I added a couple basil leaves, 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper, 1/8 tsp oregano, salt to taste, and some parmesan flakes.
I cut 4 strips of zucchini for each ravioli. In terms of assembling the ravioli, overlap two strips in one direction.
Add shredded mozzarella cheese. Then the veggies on top.
I added some pasta sauce on top and cilantro to garnish.
Try this with your favorite toppings & let me know how it turns out!
Serve as an appetizer or an entree :)
