Directions:

Preheat oven to 450°. With a vegetable peeler or mandolin, slice zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons. On a baking sheet, lay the zucchini ribbons flat and sprinkle with kosher salt. Let the zucchini sit for 20 minutes (this will allow the salt to draw out the water and make the ribbons more pliable), then pat dry.

In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mix ricotta, ½ cup mozzarella, egg, oregano, cinnamon, salt, and pepper.

In a 9x13 baking dish, spoon in the Bolognese sauce.

Lay out 2 zucchini ribbons vertically and slightly overlapping, then on top of those ribbons, lay 2 more horizontally, making a cross shape. Spoon 1½ tablespoons of the cheese filling onto the center of the cross, then tightly fold the zucchini ribbons over the cheese mixture in an alternating fashion, ending with a square bundle. Carefully flip over the zucchini ravioli and place it down in the sauce. Repeat this until you have filled the pan, 4 rows of 3 ravioli (a total of 12 ravioli).

Place the dish in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove the dish and top with parmesan and remaining mozzarella, then bake for another 5-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.

Pro Tip: Add another 1⁄4 cup of mozzarella for an extra-gooey topping.
