Pumpkin Ravioli

I’ve always steered away from making ravioli as I always though it would be too much work. When I came across this recipe for a pumpkin version it was just too tempting.

This dish worked out perfectly. It uses wonton wrappers for the ravioli, so it’s really no fuss. The delicious pockets of savoury pumpkin, tossed with melted butter, shaved Parmesan and freshly chopped herbs made this a delight to the senses. Give it a try, you’ll be amazed how easy it is!

1 1/2 teaspoon cornmeal
1 teaspoon crumbled dried sage

Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Preparation:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin purée, butter, cornmeal, sage, thyme, salt and pepper to taste.
