Did we mention it’s also one of the best ways to use up leftover veggies hanging out in your fridge? We like adding in mushrooms, onions, or chopped spinach to the sauté stage, but it is tasty just as it is!

What is Ravioli?
Ravioli are small, square-sized envelopes of pasta filled with any number of ingredients. Once the little pouches are filled, they are crimped closed and then gently boiled until they are cooked through. Ravioli can be filled with cheeses like ricotta, or veggies like minced mushrooms, or meat like sausage or ground beef.
Served with a light creamy sauce or a robust tomato sauce, ravioli are always a family favorite and a great addition to a buffet table!
I was so impressed with the quality of ravioli in the HelloFresh order – it was full of flavor.

How to Store Leftover Pasta
Pasta always tastes better the next day! Keep it stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container and it will last about 3 days (that is if you have any leftover…!!).

Garden Spinach Ricotta Ravioli
- Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Trim ends from zucchini; shave zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons using a peeler, rotating as you go. Stop once you get to the seedy core; finely chop core. Dice tomato. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Zest and quarter lemon.
- Once water is boiling, gently add ravioli to pot. Immediately reduce to a low simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente and floating to the top, 4-5 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water, then drain. TIP: Gently shake strainer with ravioli in it to remove as much moisture as possible.
- Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chopped zucchini, tomato, scallion whites, and Italian seasoning; cook until veggies are just softened, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- Reduce heat under pan with veggies to medium; stir in stock concentrate, a squeeze of lemon juice, and ⅓ cup reserved pasta cooking water. Reduce heat to low and cook 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream and 2 tablespoons butter. Season with salt and pepper. TIP: If needed, stir in more reserved cooking water a splash at a time until sauce reaches a creamy consistency.
- Separate zucchini ribbons with your hands, then stir into pan with sauce. Carefully stir in ravioli. Simmer until sauce is thickened, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon zest to taste.
- Divide ravioli mixture between bowls. Garnish with scallion greens and Parmesan. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
