Does anything say fall more than pumpkin????? I think not…….But Pumpkin Ravioli says it best!!
Easy to make, using wonton wrappers instead of making pasta, filling from canned pumpkin, a touch of sage and walnuts ………yummm!
I have always loved pasta. I could eat it everyday. There is something heart warming and hearty about a pasta dish.
I had never really thought of pumpkin with pasta, but you use squash, so why not pumpkin?? No reason what so ever……here we go.
Just a can of pumpkin, not pie filling, just regular pumpkin. Mix it with some grated nutmeg, buy the nuts and grate it yourself, you will not be sorry. A touch of parmesan and walnuts. A quick mix and ooh la la.. filling.
Wonton wrappers are a perfect faux pasta. Just fill, fold, and boil. It takes just minutes.
I had a skillet with butter over a low heat waiting to bathe the ravioli in its lusciousness. Add in some walnut and sage, give it a toss.
Plate and serve with extra, walnut, sage and parmesan cheese. The perfect fast and easy fall pasta…..Pumpkin Ravioli!
