Spinach Ravioli

This recipe is very easily adapted to meet your family's preferences and health needs.

  • Try adding lean meat, a variety of vegetables or cottage cheese.
  • You can use 2 wrappers instead of 4 per ravioli to reduce carbohydrates - but be extra gentle. The ravioli will be more delicate.

  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
