Gluten-Free Spinach Ravioli

Spinach ravioli was always an easy way to get my kids to eat their greens!

See my page with the ravioli recipe to make at home!

½ c turkey Italian sausage

½ c thawed, chopped spinach

1/3 c ricotta

4 oz (about 1 cup) shredded cheddar

¼ tsp pepper

1 minced clove garlic

1. Cook sausage until browned.

2. Add spinach, ricotta and only half the cheese, as well as salt, pepper and garlic. Mix well and let sit.

3. Fill each pasta square with 1 full tbsp of filling and use water to wet edges and seal firmly.  Use your fork to seal tighter.

4. Set each aside not touching one another.

5. Boil water in large pan.

6. Cook 8-10 at a time in gently boiling water and cook 2 minutes.

7. Serve with warm marinara or Cielo sauce.

  1. Wow, this sounds sooo good right now. I don’t know what it is about the winter, but I tend to crave heavier, hot dishes around this time. During the summer I usually crave salads. What I really like about gluten-free ravioli (I’m not a celiac but I am gluten-free because I think it’s better for you) is that it leaves you feeling lighter than when you have stuff with gluten in it. I mean, I just feel sooo much better after eating gluten free ravioli than when I have the regular stuff! Especially now that I’ve been off gluten for so long it really seems noticeable when I have gluten-containing items because I just don’t feel that good afterwards–lethargic, heavy, bloated, etc.

  2. I just wanted to say I’m a fairly new reader of your blog and it’s now bookmarked as one of my favorites! I love so many of your recipes and your reviews are done with care and the video reviews are very interesting to watch and I can tell you care very much about the subject. Thank you for all you do, Ms. Turbin. I am also going to get one of your children’s books for Christmas at (for those of you who didn’t know Tina is a children’s author too!).

  3. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good dairy substitutes in ravioli? Unfortunately it looks like I have a pretty bad intolerance to milk now, but I really love ravioli! Maybe something nutty could serve as a replacement?

  4. Hi Tina thanks for including so many Italian recipes. I really miss the Italian food I ate before I went gluten-free, but thanks to recipes like these I’m able to find pretty good substitutes. Cielo is really a great brand too.

  5. This is one of those foods I was spending WAY too much money on before so I stopped buying it and resolved to try making it but I just haven’t thought about it. You’ve jogged my memory now and it’s time that I give it a try. Who knows? It might turn out really well!

  6. Sounds good but my one complaint is why TURKEY sausage? Blah! So many gluten free recipes have turkey stuff, but from what I understand this stuff is just as processed. I’m going to make this recipe with REAL sausage-yum!

  7. I finally got around to eating this and it came out great!!!!!! I’m adding this to The List–that is, the list of gluten-free recipes I’ve tried that have “made the cut” and that I’ll make every now and then.

  8. A definite classic you have to have under your belt–gluten-free ravioli. Once I made this for my kids and husband, none of whom are celiac like me, they finally relented and agreed to go totally gluten free with me!

  9. I used real sausage and doubled the garlic (because I love sausage and garlic!!!) and it turned out GREAT! Five star gluten free recipe. I was really, really impressed.
