Food: Cheesy Zucchini Ravioli

I never say no to Italian food, but I know that since I need to watch what I eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I try to minimize eating Italian to once a month. Okay, maybe twice a month if I happen to be around pizza I cannot resist at a company lunch or a quick bite at a sports bar to watch a Giants game. Anyway. I was very glad to find this no-carb recipe for a 3-cheese zucchini ravioli bake which is not only easy to put together, but fun to eat for the entire family. Maybe consider adding ground turkey or chicken in my household if meat-protein is your thing.  But check it out: Ingredients 2 heirloom tomatoes, sliced 1 cup cherry tomatoes 4 cloves garlic, minced or grated 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar large handful fresh basil, roughly chopped 4 sprigs fresh thyme 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes kosher salt and pepper 3 medium zucchini or summer squash kosher salt and pepper 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
