The ricotta mixture is flavorful enough on it’s own thanks to lemon zest and juice, but the real star of the show is the sauce composed of balsamic roasted strawberries. Roasting brings out the sweetness of all fruits and vegetables and when you take an already naturally sweet fruit like strawberries and roast it, you’ve upped the ante. You should probably make a double batch of these strawberries so you have some leftover for your holiday party dessert! Top the whole dish off with some fresh mint, shredded Parmesan, and toasted hazlenuts for a nutty crunch.

Lemon Ricotta Ravioli

  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 26 wonton wrappers

Balsamic Roasted Strawberries

  • 1 lb California strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

For Serving (optional)

  • ¼ cup halved hazelnuts toasted
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh mint leaves


To make Lemon Ricotta Ravioli:

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine ricotta, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Working with one wonton wrapper at a time, spoon 1½ teaspoons of ricotta filling into the center of wrapper. Moisten edges of the wrapper with water. Fold wrapper in half, bringing two corners together to form a triangle. Press edges firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and ricotta filling.
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Lower heat so water is simmering. Gently add half the ravioli to the water, give a gentle stir so the ravioli don't all settle at the bottom, and cook about 3 minutes. Carefully remove ravioli with a slotted spoon. Repeat with remaining ravioli.

To make Balsamic Roasted Strawberries:

  • Preheat oven to roast at 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, toss together quartered strawberries, sugar, and balsamic vinegar. Spread on prepared baking sheet. Roast 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • Top ravioli with the roasted strawberries, a sprinkling of toasted hazelnuts, shredded Parmesan, and mint leaves.

I put fresh, cold strawberries in oatmeal – I like the contrast of temperature and they give a bit of sweetness, but also a bit of tart.

I love to add strawberries in everything! We bake muffins with strawberry puree instead of sugar, add it to our kale salad to give it some sweetness, eat them on top of pancakes instead of syrup, put them in lemonade instead of sugar! So healthy and the perfect amount of sweetness and color!

I love to serve cheese plates as an appetizer at holiday parties, but without some extras, they can be lackluster and bland looking. I’ve found that lucious red strawberries add the perfect pop of beautiful holiday color to the plate. Their sweet and slightly tart flavor wake up the taste buds and compliment the cheeses. Now, I don’t serve an app without some gorgeous strawberries on the side. My guests expect it!

We love fresh strawberries in winter salads. Their natural sweet tart flavor does not need extra sugar!

Fried strawberry sandwiches: lowfat cream cheese, jam, berries, dip in egg mixture (think frenchtoast), fry. My favorite treat on Mother’s Day, birthday, okay…any day. :)

I like having strawberries on my cereal, french toast or breakfast food to sweeten my food and start my day off right.
