Wet Dredge:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • Whisk ingredients until smooth


  • Using a Japanese mandolin thinly slice zucchini long ways into strips (Slice as thin as you can without tearing the strips)
  • Lay out strips onto a tray lined with paper towels. Lightly dust the strips with salt then place another layer of paper towels on top. Let sit for 20 minutes while you make the filling.
  • In a large skillet cook the sausage. Once fully cooked, let cool for about 5 minutes before adding spinach, ricotta and Parmesan cheese.
  • Combine the mixture and transfer to a bowl to cool
  • Before making the Ravioli, pat dry any excess moisture off the zucchini
  • To prepare the Ravioli overlap two strips horizontally and two strips vertically on a cutting board. Place a 2-3 oz scoop of filling in the center and press it out to a square shape.
  • Fold the four corners together to form a square and place folded side down on a baking rack. Continue preparing all Ravioli (should make about 10-12 Raviolis
  • Bake Ravioli at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Then let cool for 20-30 min or overnight if not serving immediately
  • Heat about 3 tablespoons of avocado oil in a pan and then dredge each Ravioli in the wet mixture then the dry mixture, then directly in the heated oil. ( shake of any extra breading before placing in the pan)
