Butternut squash ravoili is a special dish that taste fantastic. Tender pasta with a creamy squash filling with a light sauce.
MMMMM..... Not that I'm trying to brag but I have a new favorite fall meal with this Butternut Squash Ravioli recipe that I'm anxious to share with you.
A bit putzy yes, but you can do it! Your taste buds will be delighted with these little pillows of tasty squash covered in a sage cream sauce and topped with toasted pecans.
Have you ever ordered this dish in a restaurant and wondered how to make it home? Well, with this recipe, you can make these any time you want.
There are several steps but what I did to make it easier was to make the filling first and kept in the refrigerator for a week. Then when I made the dough and raviolis, I froze them for a day until I was ready to cook. (To freeze, place ravioli on a cookie sheet and place in freezer for 20 minutes. Remove and place in a large baggie).
The sauce was super easy to make and that night I just made that and cooked the raviolis.
Note: I have links in the recipe card on how to make pasta and how to cut raviolis.
Hmmm... as I'm typing this up, I'm seriously craving these again. I'll have to whip up a batch again soon!
