HEALTHY & DELICIOUS RAVIOLI RECIPE

Mushroom Ravioli with Zucchini Ribbons

It’s been ages since last time I posted a recipe here! The other night I was looking for some healthy food inspiration on Pinterest, when I came across various delicious pasta dishes that inspired me to use some of the vegetables I like the most. For this light vegetarian ravioli recipe, I combined gorgeous long ribbons of zucchini with mushroom-stuffed ravioli and a side of fresh spinach flavored with salt and garlic. It was so tasty and easy to make! Next time I’ll make sure to cook it with whole wheat pasta to get even more protein and fiber.

Give it a try!
