Pumpkin Ravioli Recipe With A Brown Butter Sage Sauce
There’s something magical when you try to recreate your favorite restaurant recipe and the result surpasses your expectations. If you need comfort food on a chilly night then this Pumpkin Ravioli Recipe will surely hit the spot.
It’s soft, sweet and savory at the time. Just like a warm hug. The best part? There’s no rolling or kneading involved – Have it on your table in 20 minutes or less! AND NO it’s not frozen ravioli. You actually make it using my little secrets.
The filling is made with Pumpkin Ricotta cheese which brings great flavor and texture. The sauce is made by cooking butter and sage until they brown up a bit. Top it off with parmesan cheese and voila! So what’s my secret weapon to making these super fast? Wonton Wrappers. Found in the refrigerated section of your supermarket.
These wonton wrappers are great to use and don’t need kneading. Just stuff and top with another sheet. Water will serve as “glue” to stick both sheets. Add to boiling water and that’s it. I used a cookie cutter to make them look round just like a real ravioli but you can certainly skip this step if you like them square. Below are step by step photos of the whole process.
If you have kids they could help you make them! Just form an assembly line with the wonton wrappers and filling. I always have a little bowl with water nearby so I can wet my fingers (shown on pic 1 top left). Water makes the perfect glue when you stick a second wonton wrapper on top. If you prefer, don’t use the second layer and just fold it using the edges, you’ll get a little triangle shaped pasta.
- For Filling
- 1 Can of Pumpkin Puree not pumpkin pie filling
- 1/2 Cup of Ricotta Cheese
- 1 Egg
- 2 tablespoon of shaved Parmesan Cheese optional
- Salt & Pepper
- Wonton Wrappers About 48
- For Sauce
- 4 Tablespoons of Butter
- 1 Tablespoon of Sage chopped
- Salt & Pepper
- Shredded Parmesan cheese for topping
To make filling:
Mix pumpkin, egg, ricotta cheese, parmesan and salt and pepper in a bowl
Work with 4-6 ravoli at a time. Cover the rest with a damp towel so they don't dry out
Grab one wonton sheet, add a small mound of filling in the center (about one teaspoon)
With your fingers, wet the edges of the ravioli using water. Cover with another wonton sheet and seal it tightly.
Use a round cookie cutter or the edge of a glass to cut out circles. Save the ravioli already made in a damp cloth to prevent them from drying
Cook ravioli in a big simmering pot of water for around 3-4 minutes until they float and completely cooked
To Make The Sauce
In a big skillet melt the butter with the sage. Using medium-low heat let it brown the butter gently. Add salt and pepper. Don't let the butter burn
Toss the ravioli inside the sauce and coat them on both sides. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top
Serve them right away
