When I think of fall, I think, not only of cooler weather and beautiful leaves, but of the seasonal foods that come along with it. It seems like as soon as September hits, we are surrounded by pumpkin. Lattes, donuts, pies, breads, and muffins, and I love it! I love pumpkins so much I often grow my own. This season I wanted to try a savory recipe instead of my usual sweet ones. So I tried pumpkin spice ravioli.
How To Make Pumpkin Spice Ravioli
I like ravioli a lot, but I also like mixing up the fillings with more than just meat, spinach or cheese. So this time I tried pumpkin and I loved it! This is a tasty, warm, fall recipe the family will love.
If you’ve never made your own ravioli it may be surprising that you make it with wonton wraps! Yes, the same things used to make egg rolls and dumplings. Not only do you use wonton wraps, but those wraps are actually pretty easy to make at home.
Of course buying them is the quickest option, but if you’re like me, you may be up for a little bigger challenge, and saving a few pennies at the grocery store.
Making your own wonton wraps
To make your own wonton wraps, you’ll need 2 cups of all purpose flour, ½ teaspoon of salt, 1 egg, ¼ cup of water (possibly more if your dough is too dry) and a little cornstarch to help it keep from sticking.
First mix the flour and salt. Make a little indentation in the flour, and add the water and whisked egg in the middle. Mix the ingredients, sprinkle your counter with cornstarch and kneed the dough for 3-5 minutes until it is smooth, adding a little water to the dough if necessary.
Split the dough into two small balls and let it rest for 30 min to 1 hour. Then roll it out really thin. Using cornstarch on the counter and rolling pin to keep from sticking, will prevent your dough becoming too think. Once rolled really thin cut circles into the dough, and continue on with the ravioli mix.
To cut the circles, you can use a small plate, or you can use a ravioli wheel like this one.
This recipe not only is a new pumpkin favorite, but the nutmeg and sage also add an extra touch of fall flavor that you and your family will love, and look forward to every time the air turns chilly.
