For this light vegetarian ravioli recipe, we combine gorgeous long ribbons of zucchini with spinach-and-cheese-stuffed ravioli and a light cream sauce for a satisfying vegetarian pasta dinner.

Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • medium zucchini, very thinly sliced lengthwise (see Tip)
  • 1 pound
    fresh or frozen spinach-and-cheese ravioli
  • 2 cloves
    garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/2 cup
  • 2 teaspoons
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon
  • large shallot, minced
  • 1/4 cup
    dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup
    thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup
    shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. Put a pot of water on to boil. Place sliced zucchini in a large colander and set it in the sink. Cook ravioli according to package directions. Pour the ravioli and cooking liquid over the zucchini in the colander.
  2. Meanwhile, mash garlic and salt together in a small bowl with a fork to form a coarse paste. Combine half-and-half and flour in another small bowl and place near the stove.
  3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and the garlic paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add wine and cook, stirring, until almost completely evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the flour mixture and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 30 seconds. Gently stir in the ravioli and zucchini, basil and pepper. Divide among 4 plates. Top each portion with 1 tablespoon Parmesan.

To make “ribbon-thin” zucchini, slice lengthwise with a vegetable peeler or a mandoline slicer.
