I went through my recipes to find what I consider to be the perfect comfort food recipe. It didn’t take me long to realize that my Pumpkin Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Sauce should be at the top of the list. This recipe is so delicious that it honestly does melt in your mouth!
Today I am also excited to share a few comfort food recipe ideas from my blogger friends. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see what they have shared.
I love this recipe and next time I make it I am going to triple the recipe so that I can freeze the extra ravioli for later. It really is that good.
I make homemade pasta but I have included a way to make this recipe without making the pasta! If you haven’t made homemade pasta I highly recommend it. It is so much fun and it tastes great. I should probably warn you that once you make homemade pasta you will likely never buy boxed pasta again. It’s really that good. I make fettuccini all of the time and I can make it in less than half an hour. So I do think it is worth the effort.
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 TBL pumpkin puree
- Ravioli Filling
- One can pumpkin puree
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 stick butter
- 2 TBL chopped fresh sage
- Grated parmesan for garnish
- Mix all ingredients in a Kitchen aid mixer. Mix for one minute. Change to the dough hook and run for two minutes. Remove, form into a ball and refrigerate for twenty minutes. Remove, and run through pasta attachment per directions provided.
- Mix pumpkin puree, cheese, sugar and spices in a bowl. Make ravioli with pasta attachment.
Sage Brown Butter Sauce
- Melt butter and add chopped sage. Cook over medium heat for five minutes until butter starts to brown. Do not burn. (Strain if necessary.)
- Cook ravioli and serve on plate. Top with butter sauce and parmesan cheese.
If you are not interested in making homemade pasta, you can also use purchased won ton skins instead of pasta. Just fill with the pumpkin filling and pinch around the edges with a fork.
I don’t know about you but I love roasted brussel sprouts. Janine at Happy Happy Nester has the best caramelized roasted brussel sprouts recipe.
Ashley with Modern Glam has the best “pasta” recipe. Check out this Whole30 Zoodles Bolognese! I really want to try it.
If you are looking for a more traditional pasta recipe, check out Rhonda’s spaghetti sauce with meat.
I hope you will try out some of these recipes. If you are looking for comfort food in this weather then you have come to the right place!
