Fresh From the Farmers Market: Fun and Flavorful Zucchini Ravioli
| 2 min read
Craving pasta? This dish has all the flavor of traditional ravioli with a healthy twist.
If you haven’t had time to grow your own zucchinis this year, start your search for ingredients at a Michigan Farmers Market. As you explore the booths, look for the zucchini that have a rich color and no soft spots. Friendly tip: Zucchinis with long stems attached are likely to stay fresh longer.
Take advantage of the opportunity to spend time with family and get the kids in the kitchen to help roll your homemade ravioli. If you’re someone who has trouble getting the little ones to eat their veggies, they may be more likely to try the creation they had a hand in making. This dish isn’t limited to being vegetarian–feel free switch things up and add ground turkey or chicken to the filling.
Although they are a summer favorite, zucchinis actually stay in season through October. The basil and fresh herbs incorporated in this recipe are also available into the fall.
