"I made this for a "girls night out" get together. I peeled my squash so thin it could have done less time boiling with the ravioli but....even with that it was a HUGE hit. Will make this again!! Got major thumbs up!"

"I followed directions for most part. I used two unpeeled yellow crock neck and one peeled green zucchini

I sautéed the Vegs w galic salt. Other than that I sprinkled mozzarella on top. Very good vegetarian dinner. I would add fresh spinach next time or gr turkey for the protein"

"We all enjoyed this a lot. Next time, I will chop up the basil leaves for the inner layer--finding a whole one in a bite was a little much!"

"I loved everything about this recipe. I made a half recipe as I cooked it for myself. It was easy to assemble and tasted delicious. Now I'm wishing I had made the full recipe!"

"I have made this a couple times now and my family really likes it. It is like a veggie lasagna, but with ravioli instead of lasagna noodles. It was easy to assemble and made great leftovers. The only thing I changed the second time around was how much squash I used. The recipe calls for too much for our tastes so I only used one of each the second time around."

"We enjoyed this very much and it was a change from many pasta dishes, plus the vegetables. Add a salad and you have a great dinner."
