Description

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram pumpkin
  • 160 grams cookies (amaretto, chopped finely)
  • 160 grams apples (pickled, chopped finely)
  • 180 grams grated parmesan cheese

  • ground nutmeg
  • ground pepper
  • salt
  • 600 grams all-purpose flour
  • 6 eggs
  • salt
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • butter

Directions

  1. 1Cut open the pumpkin and remove the seeds, peel it and cut it into pieces, then bake it at 180C until tender.
  2. 2Remove the pumpkin from the oven and put it through a food mill.
  3. 3Place the pumpkin puree in a bowl, add the amaretto cookies, pickled apple, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Stir the ingredients until well combined.
  4. 4Prepare the pasta dough with the flour, a pinch of salt, and the eggs.
  5. 5Knead the dough well, then roll it out.
  6. 6Cut out rectangles measuring 8x4 centimeters.
  7. 7Place a teaspoon of the filling on each rectangle, then seal the rectangles closed, pinching the edges well.
