This is a light version of the popular baked ziti, incorporating summer vegetables!
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Brown meat in a skillet, drain grease, and set aside. In a skillet over medium heat, brown zucchini and onions in olive oil until lightly transparent. Add tomatoes and garlic. Add ground meat and cook for additional 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and add cooked pasta. Mix in half of the mozzarella into the mixture. Lightly beat the egg and mix with ricotta cheese in a separate bowl. Add the egg-cheese mixture to the vegetable-meat mixture.
Place mixture in a greased glass baking or casserole dish and top with the remaining mozzarella. Cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
