Ingredient Notes

Pumpkin Puree: Please don’t make this common mistake when adding pumpkin puree to your cart. Do not buy pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree – they are not the same! Make sure you are getting the pumpkin puree which is healthy and rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Fresh Pasta: A lot of people think that making fresh pasta means a lot of work and effort. I am here to tell you that it’s worth any extra effort, especially for homemade ravioli. Fresh pasta is light but also has a sturdy texture that holds its own under the weight of fillings and sauces – just like the pumpkin in this recipe.

How To Make This Homemade Ravioli

Pumpkin Ravioli:

  • Make a batch of pasta dough (see notes below for a link to our pasta dough recipe) or use premade dough. You’ll need 4 sheets of dough, each piece of dough at least 4.5 inches wide and 14 inches long and about ⅛ inch thick.

  • In a bowl combine pumpkin puree, ricotta, salt, onion powder, nutmeg, ground pepper and shredded parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  • If using a 12-piece ravioli maker follow the instructions below. If you do not have a 12-piece ravioli maker see the notes below.
  • Dust the top of the rolled-out dough with more flour and your ravioli maker/press.
  • Flip the dough over and place it in the ravioli maker. Gently press the plastic ravioli piece into the top of the dough, making small pouches. Fill the pouches with 1 tablespoon of pumpkin filling each.

  • Using water, lightly brush all of the edges of the ravioli maker, around the filling. With a rolling pin or pasta maker roll out another piece of dough very thin, approximately 1/8-inch-thick- making it large enough to cover the area of the entire ravioli press.

  • Transfer the pasta sheet to cover the ravioli maker, removing air pockets.
  • Seal all edges by running a rolling pin over the top. Roll across the dough in all directions until the frame is visible through the pasta.
  • On a lightly floured surface, flip the ravioli maker upside down and gently tap the edges on the surface to release the ravioli.
  • Transfer all of the ravioli to a baking sheet covered in parchment paper, until ready to cook. Repeat the process to make another batch.

Pumpkin Spice Pecans Brown Butter Sage Sauce:

  1. To make the brown butter sauce, in a large skillet melt the butter over medium heat until starting to foam. Then turn to medium-low heat and continue cooking until butter starts to smell nutty and turns a golden brown colour, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the grated garlic and sage and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant and sage leaves are crispy. Add the pecans and then remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Then working in batches, cook ravioli until tender, about 2-3 minutes. Ravioli will start to float to the surface when done cooking. Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked ravioli and place them right in the brown butter sauce. Turn back to medium-low heat and toss gently with the sauce, ensuring each ravioli is covered for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Serve topped with more pecans, parmesan cheese and a pinch of salt.
