READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by tigerduck

This is a recipe for just 1 person. It is ideal for singles like me. I haven't made this yet, but wanted to store it here because the magazine where the recipe is from (essen & trinken) will soon be in the hands of my magazine swap partner.

I doubled the recipe which made ample servings of a really tasty lunch dish for three. I used green zucchini (I couldn’t find yellow), doubled the garlic, halved the oil (I used a non-stick pan) and I used a reduced fat cream which I always find creamy enough. I’ve made this for Pick a Chef 2006. Thank you, tigerduck, for an easy to make and yummy recipe, which came close in deliciousness to my nostalgic childhood memory of my first ever ravioli, enjoyed somewhere in the Swiss Alps, many decades ago! I actually selected this recipe – though it’s vastly different - with that ravioli in mind! Loved the basil on this!
