Ingredients

  • 1 package store bought fresh lasagne sheets

Ravioli Filling

  • 1 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 cup chopped butternut squash
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup mixed mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp dry white wine optional
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup kale chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Red Pepper Cream Sauce

  • 2 red peppers, roasted
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tsp flour
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

For filling:

  • Cut butternut squash into 1/2-inch pieces and sauté with olive oil for 10 minutes.
  • Add red onion, mushrooms and garlic, cooking until mushrooms release juices, about 5-6 min. Add wine, salt and pepper and cook for another 2 min. Add kale and parmesan cheese, stirring well and removing from heat.

For ravioli:

  • Run lasagne sheets under hot water one at a time for 20-30 seconds until pliable. Place wet sheet on a floured surface.
  • Cut sheet in three.Add about 1-2 tsp of filling to lasagne sheet, and sprinkle some flour on the wet lasagne sheet to make it sticky.
  • Fold each segment over and press down to get rid of air bubbles where filling is. Use a fork if necessary to press pasta down to stick.
  • Once you have all your raviolis (I recommend about 4-5 raviolis per person, they are pretty big!), drop them each delicately into a large pot of boiling water and cook for about 2 minutes until ravioli floats to the top and the pasta is al dente.
  • Serve ravioli with red pepper cream sauce, and garnish with parmesan cheese, fresh basil and salt & pepper. Ravioli also freezes well up to 3 months once cooked.

For sauce:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice peppers in half, getting rid of seeds and white pith. Drizzle with about 1 tbsp of olive oil, then cook in oven for 30 min. Remove and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in pan and once hot, add garlic and butter. Once butter is melted, add flour, then whisk in cream and cheese slowly. Add salt and pepper, and then simmer sauce for 4-5 min on low.
  • Add red peppers, then mix together in a blender or Magic Bullet to puree the red pepper and create a smooth, creamy sauce. Serve overtop of butternut squash ravioli and enjoy!

Notes

Make a big batch of the red pepper cream sauce and use it to make other dishes.
If you’re not a fan of butternut squash, you can also stuff the ravioli with canned pumpkin.
Store the ravioli and sauce separately in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop.
Freeze the cooked ravioli and ravioli filling for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen in the microwave for 4-5 minutes.
