Write a review
  1. 4-5 medium to large yellow squash
  2. 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  3. 1.5 lbs. ground chicken
  4. 1 8 oz. bag frozen spinach, thawed
  5. 8 oz. mascarpone cheese
  6. 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  7. 1 clove garlic, minced
  8. small handful fresh basil leaves
  9. salt and pepper to taste
Caulif-redo Sauce
  1. 1 head of cauliflower, cored and chopped into large chunks
  2. 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  3. 1 shallot, minced
  4. 1 cup chicken broth
  5. 3 Tbsp. shredded parmesan
  6. 1/4 cup canned coconut milk
  7. salt/pepper to taste
  8. pinch of nutmeg
  1. Cut ends of squash off and slice down the middle so you have two halves. Using the narrowest setting on your mandolin, slice the squash into long, flat strips. You'll end with around 70 or so strips.
  2. In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and a pinch of salt and sauté for about 5 minutes, until nearly translucent. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  3. Add ground chicken to onion and garlic and sauté until chicken is cooked all the way through.
  4. Squeeze all the excess water out of the spinach, then ad chicken, spinach, salt, pepper, and mascarpone to a food processor or blender and puree until mixture reaches desired consistency (I like it relatively smooth).
  5. Assemble the ravioli by just barely overlapping two strips of squash (pictured above). Do the same over the middle of the first two strips, but perpendicular, creating a cross or "t" shape.
  6. Spoon filling in the center of the cross, then bring the ends of the strips together, overlapping each other. If that doesn't make sense, just see the picture above.
  7. Secure with a toothpick.
  8. Before serving, steam raviolis for about 4 minutes, or until squash is tender and inside is warm.
  9. Top with Caulif-redo or sauce of your choice.
  1. Steam cauliflower until fork-tender.
  2. While cauliflower steams, heat olive oil over medium low heat in a small pot. Add shallot and sauté for a few minutes, then add chicken broth and heat through.
  3. Add cauliflower, shallot/broth mixture, and remaining ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add more coconut milk if needed.
