    • sea salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 1/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
    • 1 cup fresh spinach
    • 1 cup cooked salmon, flaked
    • 3 tablespoons ricotta cheese
    • 3 tablespoons cottage cheese
    • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
    • 500g fresh pasta sheets
    • For the Roasted Vegetables
    • 4 cups cauliflower florets
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

    Preparation:40min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:1hour chilling  ›  Ready in:2hours 

    1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and the chopped spring onion and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the eggplant, salt and pepper and cook until the eggplant begins to brown, about 7 minutes.
    2. Mix in the mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are soft and have given off all of their liquid. Reduce the heat to low and add the spinach. Cook until the spinach wilts, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the salmon, ricotta, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley and the dried basil. Mix well and set aside.
    3. On a lightly floured surface roll out the pasta dough into a long thin rectangle; the dough should be about 1 millimeter thick. Slice the dough in half width-wise, to make two rectangles. Spoon half the salmon mixture onto one side of each rectangle. Fold the other side of the rectangle over the filling and press to seal the dough around the filling. Trim the edges to make a nice shape and crimp edges to seal. Repeat with remaining ravioli. Refrigerate ravioli for 1 hour.
    4. Coat the cauliflower with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix together the minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the garlic-bread crumb mixture over the cauliflower and toss to combine.
    5. Preheat an oven to 200 degrees C.
    6. Spray a baking tray with olive oil cooking spray. Place the ravioli in the center of the tray. Surround the ravioli with the seasoned cauliflower. Arrange the cherry tomatoes over the cauliflower and top with grated zucchini and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
    7. Bake the ravioli and vegetables in the preheated oven until the cauliflower and zucchini begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Remove the baking tray from the oven. Use a spatula to transfer each ravioli to the center of a dinner plate. Spoon cauliflower mixture around the ravioli. Spread 1/2 tablespoon butter on each ravioli, sprinkle with the remaining chopped parsley and serve.

    Great recipe I turned ours into a pasta instead of a ravioli- but delicious. I put hot peppers in as the eggplact cooked to add some spice and I changed the parmisiano to Pecorino and then baked it all together AMAZING!  -  10 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought the filling could have a little something added to make it richer, but I really enjoyed the entire meal. I made everything per the recipe except I made my own homemade spinach garlic pasta. Unfortunately, my kiddos and husband didn't enjoy this meal, so I gave some to my coworkers who thought it was great. I can't win! For the amount of effort, I won't be making this again, but definitely worth trying once.  -  23 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
