Summer Ravioli with zucchini, squash and red peppers

With summer fleeting away, I wanted to take advantage of the last of summer’s harvest. Fresh zucchini, yellow squash, and red peppers bring the dish alive and dancing with color.

If you have time the night before, I recommend prepping the vegetables (julienne, chop, slice, dice) and storing them in a tubberware. It cuts down the cooking time the next day. Put away away the take out and try this quick 30 minute meal.
