This easy four ingredient Keto Ravioli is loaded with sausage and spinach and only has 1.3 net carbs per serving!
You guys! Keto RAVIOLI! I am so pumped to share this easy low carb ravioli recipe because it is not only delicious and crazy low carb (under 2 net carbs per serving!) but it will satisfy your pasta cravings! We have been gluten free for over 10 years so ravioli is a distant memory for us, but it used to be one of my favorite dishes. After I made my Keto Chicken Taquitos I knew I wanted to try other things using the same method.
What ingredients do you need to make Keto Ravioli?
The best part of this recipe is how easily it comes together! As with my Keto Chicken Taquitos we use cheese to create a shell that is stuffed with sausage, spinach and cream cheese. Of course, you can customize this recipe based on your preferences. If you like things hot try a s spicy Italian sausage or chopped kale instead of spinach. You can also completely switch things up and use a different protein or veggie if you desire. As written, the ingredients you will need to make keto ravioli are:
- Mozzarella slices
- Cooked sausage
- Cream Cheese
- Low carb marinara sauce
Aside from the ingredients there is one thing that is very important to make this recipe successful. You must use a silicone baking sheet so the cheese does not stick. This is the same baking sheet I use for the Keto Buffalo Chicken Taquitos and Keto Jalapeno Popper Taquitos. I use this set from amazon, two come in a package and they are great for baking all sorts of things because nothing ever sticks.
How do you make Keto Ravioli?
Making Keto Ravioli is so easy! There are just two simple steps to follow. The first is making the ravioli shells and the second is stuffing them. Here are my best tips and tricks to make easy low carb ravioli:
Ravioli Cheese Shells (checkout the video to see exactly how to do it!)
As with the taquitos, we bake the sliced mozzarella cheese to form a shell. The difference here is that we slice the cheese diagonally so we can create little ravioli. The second difference is that we do not cook the cheese quite as long. I remove my cheese from the oven when the edges have browned, but now when they are completely brown like I did with the taquitos. This makes sense if you think about it, taquitos are modeled off a corn tortilla so you want them to be crunchy. Alternatively, ravioli is soft so the cooking time is going to be less.
Stuffing the Low Carb Ravioli
When you remove the cheese shells from the oven the edges should be slightly brown and the cheese will begin to have a bit of “hold” to it, meaning you can stuff it and then pull the top portion over to close the ravioli.The filling for this recipe is cooking sausage, cream cheese and spinach. Each ravioli contains about 1 tablespoon of the filling.
- 1/2 pound ground Italian sausage
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup fresh spinach, torn
- 8 slices Mozzarella Cheese (I use Sargento)
Cook the sausage and drain off any fat. While it is still warm combine with the cream cheese and torn spinach leaves. Stir well and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the mozzarella cheese slices diagonally so each square creates two triangles.
Place the slices on the silicone baking sheet and bake 3-5 minutes until the edges are brown (watch the video)
Remove from the oven and place one tablespoon of the filling on one side of the baked cheese shells, carefully pull the other side over to create a ravioli pocket.
Serve immediately with warm low carb marinara.
Please use a silicone baking mat, it makes this recipe so easy. Cheese will stick to a pan without a silicone baking mat.
