Zucchini Cheese Ravioli

These zucchini cheese ravioli will make a great appetizer for your next gourmet meal! Friends and family will never know they are not pasta!


•Medium zucchini, thinly sliced, two slices per ravioli
•Cream cheese, estimate 1 teaspoon per ravioli
•Shredded white cheese, about 1 teaspoon per ravioli (I used a pizza blend)
•salt, pepper, chopped herbs to season the filling to taste
•2 eggs beaten with a few teaspoons of water
•2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
•oil for frying
•chopped parsley for garnish
•tomato sauce for serving


1.Mix sufficient cream cheese with shredded cheese and seasoning for the filling. (For 10 ravioli you would use about a ⅓ cup of each…don’t worry too much about it, you can always make a little more).
2.Assemble the ravioli and secure with a toothpick.
3.Dip each one in egg, then bread crumbs.
4.Repeat the egg dip and use your hands to gently pack the bread crumbs around the ravioli.
5.Make more egg wash and add more breadcrumbs as needed.
6.Measure enough oil to come about halfway up the sides of the ravioli in a frying pan and heat until shimmering.
7.Carefully add three or four raviolis and fry until golden brown on both sides (three or four minutes per side).
8.Drain the raviolis on some paper towels.
9.Serve while hot with some sauce on the side as desired.
