Cheesy Pumpkin Ravioli

Rated as 4.25 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe was inspired by a delicious ravioli I had at a restaurant (Cactus Club's butternut squash ravioli). I converted it into a pumpkin sauce and incorporated some of the same ingredients found in pumpkin pie. It's easy to make and takes only 20 minutes from start to finish. Perfect autumn comfort food."

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in ravioli and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until ravioli float to the top and filling is hot, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. Melt mascarpone cheese, butter, and a pinch black pepper in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir milk, pumpkin, Pecorino Romano cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon, 2 teaspoons salt, and nutmeg into mascarpone cheese mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until sauce thickens, 5 to 10 minutes. Add cooked ravioli into sauce and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top each serving with pine nuts.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Add more milk if sauce is too thick.

This turned out pretty well! It was definitely savory, but very different from a "standard" sauce. Worth trying if you want to do something different. Maybe not "comfort food" enough to make ...

This dish was so perfect for fall! The only change I made was reducing the cinnamon to 1 tsp but that’s just personal preference. I also omitted the pine nuts which i thought weren’t necessary....
