    At 27 grams of carbs per serving, this is NOT low carb. I'm not sure why there are dates in this recipe, but most dates are very high in sugar (about 15+ grams of sugar per date) and the sugar content isn't even mentioned in the nutrition info! Leave out the dates and it sounds good. - 10/8/13

    Had difficulty slicing the squash thin enough, so I made it like a sandwich instead of hash tags. The raw marinara is nice. I added some hot pepper to mine. The ravioli was a bit bland and I was concerned about ensuring the ground turkey cooked sufficiently. The marinara sauce saved the dish. - 11/11/13

    I always use carrots to cut acidity but in this case I would probably just roast the tomatoes with the ravioli and blend the sauce afterwards. The roasting should sweeten those tomatoes up considerably but it would definitely taste different than raw marinara. - 10/8/13

    I liked this recipe but I wasn't sure if the ravioli hashtags were cooked all the way. I had to cook them on the stove top afterwards just to be sure but I am always paranoid about not cooking the meat all the way. Other than that these are great. The raw marinara is AMAZING!! - 10/1/13

    The dates are probably there to cut the acidity of the tomato sauce. Almost all marinara and tomato sauces have some kind of sugar added to cut the acid. Dates are a great way to do it IMO. - 10/8/13

  • I am surprised at the amount of carbs in this recipe. I'll be making it without the dates. When I looked at the nutritional content, the turkey used had some additives which is not at all unusual for ground turkey, but perhaps some of the carbs came from the additives. - 4/12/14

    If you read all the ingredient breakout there are 16.0 grams of sugar. I think the dates are covered. - 10/19/13

    I have a question concerning the slicing of the squash. Would it be okay to slice it with an apple peeler, or would the strips be too thin? - 10/8/13
