Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage
Posted By diabeticFoodie On December 20, 2012 @ 12:48 pm In Appetizers & Snacks,Pasta & Grains,Vegetarian | 4 Comments
Many years ago when I lived in Boston, a vegetarian friend turned me on to the joyful combination of winter squash, pasta, and sage. We went out to an Italian restaurant for a birthday celebration and my friend ordered some mouth-watering butternut squash ravioli with sage-butter sauce. When she generously offered me a bite, I almost sent back my meal and ordered hers instead.
This recipe reminds me of that dish, although I’m guessing this version is much easier to prepare since you use wonton wrappers instead of making your own pasta.
This is one of the recipes I enjoyed from America’s Favorite Food: 200 top-rated recipes from the country’s best magazines .
The original recipe  uses 9 tablespoons of butter and pancetta. I replaced some of the butter with olive oil and used turkey bacon instead of pancetta. I also used part-skim ricotta. Note that the photos don’t include the bacon. I, uh, forgot it. Let’s just say I wanted to show the vegetarian version and leave it at that.
This ravioli makes a great sit-down appetizer or a stunning main course. Any winter squash will work if you prefer not to use butternut.
Make it Vegetarian: Skip the turkey bacon.
Make it Ahead: Cook the squash, make the filling and stuff the ravioli. Place the ravioli in a single layer on baking sheets and place in freezer. Once ravioli are frozen, place them in a zipper-top bag and put them back in the freezer. When you’re ready to cook the ravioli, drop them into the boiling water still frozen. They will take an extra minute or two to cook through. Make the sauce and put everything together.
