Pumpkin ravioli

Patrick and I fixed up this simple pumpkin ravioli a few weeks ago. Even though it's September and all things are officially now pumpkin this ravioli was made with a bag of frozen pumpkin. I thought it would be best to work on using up things in our freezer before they would get replenished. We don't use a whole lot of pumpkin but I do really enjoy breaking down the pie pumpkins in the fall, roasting them, and then pureeing them to have on hand for pumpkin things. And this pumpkin ravioli is a pumpkin thing!

We whipped up this ravioli with pantry things on hand and it turned out really well (which means we didn't have any ricotta and needed to find good substitutions)! Read on to see what we did.

Pumpkin Ravioli
   To make the pumpkin filling combine 2 cups plain pumpkin puree with 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. 
   Meanwhile prepare pasta dough (2 eggs combined with 200 grams flour in the food processor) and roll through a pasta press. Using a ravioli maker lay out the pasta and fill with pumpkin filling. Top with another pasta sheet and press out of the ravioli molds. 
   Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook ravioli until it floats (just a few minutes). 
   Serve the pumpkin ravioli with arugula. Top with Parmesan cheese and a good balsamic vinegar.
