Pumpkin-Sage Ravioli with Balsamic Drizzle and Toasted Walnuts

Bring the warm flavors pumpkin, spice and toasted nuts to the table with this unique "pasta" made from a surprise ingredient

1(15-ounce)can pumpkin                                         

2 tablespoons dried bread crumbs                             

2 teaspoons brown sugar                                            

¾ teaspoon dried sage                                               

½ teaspoon salt                                                             

1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper                             

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg                                     

Cooking spray

25 wonton wrappers



2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

5 tablespoons walnuts, toasted coarsely chopped

Minced fresh sage (optional)

Shaved Parmesan cheese (optional)


To make ravioli, combine pumpkin, bread crumbs, brown sugar, sage, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a medium bowl.  Stir until all ingredients are combined. Cover baking sheets with waxed or parchment paper.  Set aside.  Place a single won-ton wrapper on work surface; cover remaining wrappers with a damp towel to prevent drying.  Place slightly less than 1 tablespoon of pumpkin filling in the center of wrapper.  Dab water on won-ton edges; fold diagonally to form triangle, press edges firmly to seal.  Transfer to baking sheets; repeat with remaining wrappers and filling to make 25 ravioli.  Cover filled ravioli with damp towel during assembly process to prevent drying.


Bring a large pot of water to a simmer.  Add about 6 ravioli to pot; simmer until tender and ravioli float to surface, about 4 minutes.  Gently stir half-way through cooking to prevent sticking.  Avoid boiling.  Remove ravioli with slotted spoon; drain.  Lightly coat with cooking spray and keep warm until serving. Repeat with remaining ravioli.


To make sauce, combine oil and vinegar in a small bowl.  Whisk until well combined.


To serve, plate ravioli and evenly drizzle each serving with oil and vinegar mixture plus 1 tablespoon walnuts.  Top with minced fresh sage and shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes 5 servings.
