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
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
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.
