Inspired by the regional Italian cuisine of Mantova, Lombardy, these handmade ravioli are filled with a mixture of roasted pumpkin, finely chopped, pickled apples and amaretti cookies, a mixture that's offset by salty Parmesan cheese and a dash of nutmeg. Once boiled, the toothsome pasta is simply dressed with butter and additional Parmesan, resulting in a sweet-savory, indulgent main course that takes considerably less time to prepare than you might expect.
