I'm not going to lie to you. Making ravioli at home can be labor intensive. However, the result is always well worth the time and effort you put into preparing them.
I learned to make ravioli at home when I was a teenager and my mom used to fill wonton wraps with pumpkin, fold them in the shape of ravioli, and keep them in the freezer for days or weeks. Whenever any of us felt like having some fresh pasta, she would take them out, cook them in the blink of an eye, and add only garlic and sage on top of them. They were so tasty that they didn't need anything more!
To this day, filling my ravioli with pumpkin and using only butter as a sauce is my favorite way of eating them. But today I've taken this simple recipe a bit further, adding some greens and a little maple syrup to the filling. The latter is my new favorite ingredient, and it brings a delicious earthy sweetness to it. Together with nutmeg, it makes me feel like fall.
Happy cooking and happy fall!
