I chopped yellow and green squash into rounds and layered them, raw (rue the day I serve overly mushy squash), with cheese, sauce, and ravioli - skipping the beef, baked 30 minutes then served with garlic breadsticks and a salad for an easy weeknight meal.
Delicious and easy! I cut the zucchini the short way so they would be the same size as the ravioli (made for really easy serving later!). I didn't want the zucchini to get too cooked down, so I sauteed them with the onions. I omitted the beef (don't eat it) and Parmesan, used homemade tomato sauce and shredded asiago cheese (it was on hand), and used mozzarella & spinach ravioli. It was wonderful! Thank you for a keeper!
I loved this easy-to-make dish! Zucchini and pasta sauce are a great match and go well with the ravioli and meat. I lightly sauted my zucchini slices instead of boiling them, otherwise made as specified. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe!
This was good and vey easy. I made it exactly as posted but next time I think I will cut the zucchini smaller and mix it in rather than layer it. My DH would have preferred if I left the zucchini out altogether, so maybe this will blend it in more. I also think I will make it with my own spaghetti sauce next time with meat balls instead of jarred sauce with meat mixed in (but that is because I am a spaghetti sauce snob, lol). All in all, a good dish!
I'd never thought of making a ravioli lasagna/bake before this recipe. Thanks for that idea. I thought the whole thing was a bit bland but perhaps I could change the sauce to help that out. Pretty easy to make but next time I would not cut zucchini lengthwise but make it more a part of the dish--cutting it into disks or something.
Most of the family rated this 4 and a half. My father said it would have been better without the zuchinni - he is anti vegetable lol. Anyway we enjoyed it. I found that 1 cup of cheese wasnt enough so I doubled it.
This was outstanding..... I had tagged this for PT and actually forgotten what day it was due.... Annacia send me a friendly reminder last night and I threw it together in no time.... This was so quick and easy to prepare.... I actually think it took less than the 40 min. prep time listed.... The flavor was great.... My first time eating zucchini in lasagna and it was great.... What a wonderful way to get more veggies in the kids diet..... Oh, how I'll be making this time after time.
