    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

    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 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

    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

    When I make this I will cut the dates and pre-cook the ground turkey before stuffing to ensure it all is cooked properly. Thanks for the idea on using the yellow squash like this, I would of never thought of it! - 2/23/16

    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

    I cut the squash using a mandolin, nice and thin. Night before, hubby had the grill going, so cooked the squash on the grill. That brought out a lot of flavor. I crumbled up a vegan burger instead of using the meat. Very good. - 6/27/20

    Slicing the squash using a mandolin is the best way to get thin consistent ribbons that are foldable.I cooked the meat first, just like I do with regular ravioli. Delicious sauce!!! - 2/8/20

  • There are several ways to change the carb count and still keep the sugars low. Stievia or one of the better artificials. remove the high sugar dates, cut to 1% cottage cheese for the sodium drop. The combo sounds good without the dates. - 6/4/19

    I tried this with the marinara (which was great), but like it better with just a little butter and a tbsp of fresh shredded Parmesan cheese. Taking out the marinara definitely reduced the carbs to an acceptable level for me. - 7/23/18

    I admit it I cheated on the recipe but time was the factor. I used salsa for the marinara, I steamed the squash before filling, I used leftover cooked turkey chunks and tossed in more seasoning to offset the cottage cheese. - 5/16/18
