I honestly can’t remember the last time I had ravioli. Even though these aren’t the real thing they came pretty close and I was shockingly surprised to see how well they turned out! They are a little fragile so be careful when making these. They most definitely hit the spot! You can get creative and fill these with whatever you like. I eat a strict clean diet so I don’t eat cheese but these would be pretty amazing with cheese if you do! You can also fill them with other meat options, sausage, beef, etc. Get creative and have fun!
*Serving size is based on how many you are planning to make. I used 2 small yellow squash and 1 pc of chicken breast*
Season chicken with whatever seasoning you like. I seasoned my chicken with only salt and pepper because the pesto gives it enough flavor.
Bring a sauce pan to medium heat and sautee your chicken. While the chicken is cooking, peel the yellow squash lengthwise – the thicker and longer the easier to fold.
In a food processor or blender, blend together fresh basil and olive oil to make pesto. Once the chicken is cooked, add the pesto and mix together for a minute or two.
Place two pieces of the squash horizontal and then 2 more pieces vertical. Place the chicken/pesto in the center and fold the squash to the center and carefully flip over. You can use a tooth pick to hold them in place if they aren’t staying folded. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees and add the ravioli on a cookie sheet to the oven and bake for 15 mins or until the edges are crisp. Remove from the oven and top with tomato sauce of your choice. I always use unsalted hunts and add my own seasoning (salt, pepper, oregano, parsley).
Very simple and fast! These turned out a lot better than expected!
