Zavioli with Spinach and Ricotta



Ingredients :

  • 1 ¼ cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 egg
  • lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • torn
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • or more to taste
  • ½ clove garlic (Optional)
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1 extra large zucchini
  • 9 toothpicks
  • soaked in water
  • ¼ cup pasta sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • Methods :

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Mix ricotta cheese, spinach, egg, and pepper together in a bowl.
  • Grind basil, oil, and garlic together into a chunky paste using a mortar and pestle. Add pine nuts to the pesto; grind to the size of small peddles.
  • Slice zucchini lengthwise into strips using a mandoline.
  • Arrange 2 zucchini strips in the shape of a cross. Spoon some of the ricotta cheese mixture in the middle of the cross. Top with a dollop of pesto. Fold ends into the center to create a parcel, starting from the bottom end and moving clockwise. Secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining zucchini strips, ricotta cheese mixture, and pesto.
  • Spread some of the pasta sauce in the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Arrange zucchini parcels on top, spacing them 1/2 inch apart. Spoon a bit of pasta sauce on top of each parcel. Sprinkle Parmiggiano-Reggiano cheese on top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until sauce and zucchini begin to brown, about 20 minutes.
