Double Spinach Ravioli in Buffalo Mozzarella Summer Squash Sauce – This pasta sauce is a great way to hide veggies into your kids’ pasta meals. They won’t be able to guess all the squash you snuck into the sauce!

Double Spinach Ravioli

This Double Spinach Ravioli in Buffalo Mozzarella Summer Squash Sauce was one of the pasta dishes I had prepared in hopes of participating in the bi-annual Blogging Marathon. Since I couldn’t participate, I am still sharing this delectable and addictive pasta dish with you. I made this dish after a weekend where I visited both my local Farmer’s Market and my local food coop. I picked up the squash and fresh ravioli from the farmer’s market and the mozzarella from the Park Slope Food Coop. The fresh ravioli was both made with a spinach dough and had spinach inside, for a double dose of Vitamin A & C. In fact, this recipe provides 11% of your daily Vitamin A, 30% of your daily Vitamin C and 35% of your daily Calcium intake

By pureeing the vegetables into the sauce, it is a great way of sneaking more vegetables into the diet of those little ones who like to avoid anything that looks like vegetables. They will never know all the veggies you sneaked in this dish in both the sauce and the spinach stuffed ravioli’s. This is a creamy tasting dish that I don’t think anyone can refused (unless you’re lactose intolerant).

Although I used roly poly, any summer squash can be used like zucchini or cousa.

Especially in the summer, one pot pasta dishes are the best! Here are some others you might like to try out!
