CREAMY PUMPKIN RAVIOLI

Fall has arrived in Ohio and I am now looking for the perfect fall comfort food.

I am putting on those cozy sweaters, lighting those pumpkin spice candles and sipping on a warm glad of apple cider.

There is something so comforting about fall and this Creamy Pumpkin Ravioli is the perfect meal to make. 

The food of fall is also something I love and this is one of my favorite fall pasta recipes. This recipe would also be a nice recipe for the holiday season.

Whether it is this Pumpkin Ravioli or a Pumpkin Spice Latte or a big bowl of this Butternut Squash Pasta there is just so much to love.

Today’s ravioli recipe cooks in one pot which is always a big plus in my book. It comes together with very little effort which is so nice.

When I think about Italian food one of my favorite things to eat is ravioli.

I grew up eating it in my family and it was one of my favorite meals.

My family loved it so much that we had to set a limit on how many raviolis my sister and I could take so that everyone got some. 

You might just have to do the same for your family when you make this fall inspired one pot pumpkin ravioli.

This dish is versatile and you can use whatever ravioli you prefer.

You can try to find a pumpkin or butternut squash ravioli or use a cheese ravioli.

I have ever used a sausage and spinach ravioli along with the pumpkin sauce and it tastes great.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED FOR CREAMY PUMPKIN RAVIOLI

It just takes a few simple ingredients to create this recipe. I suggest using your favorite ravioli and then you just need the below ingredients for the pumpkin ravioli sauce.

HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS PUMPKIN RAVIOLI

Heat the oil in a large skillet pot over medium heat.

Add the onion and sauté until transparent.

Add the garlic clove and cook for 1 more minute or until fragrant.

HOW DO YOU SPICE UP YOUR CREAMY PUMPKIN RAVIOLI:

This pumpkin ravioli recipe is very simple. If you want to try and spice it up here are some ideas:

NUTS: I love adding nuts to my pasta dishes, especially in the fall. It gives you the health benefits of nuts plus the crunchy texture paired with the pasta. For today’s dish I love adding pine nuts, sliced almonds, walnuts, pecans or pistachios. 

CHEESE: Cheese can always spice up a pasta dish. I topped this dish with parmigiano reggiano cheese but I think that mozzarella, ricotta cheese or goat cheese would be really good as well. 

PROTEIN: Protein is a nice option to make this dish more interesting. I especially love bacon, prosciutto or Italian sausage. 

HERBS & SPICES: I like to pair fall spices and fresh herbs with this dish.  You can sprinkle cinnamon or cloves on the finished dish or fresh sage or fresh rosemary.

CITRUS: Grate some lemon zest over your pumpkin ravioli to add a bright and citrusy flavor.

BALSAMIC VINEGAR: Try adding a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to the finished dish or even balsamic glaze

TOASTED BREADCRUMBS: I love to add toasted breadcrumbs in olive oil until golden brown and sprinkle them over your ravioli. You make your own breadcrumbs by adding bread to a food processor and processing it until it is a fine texture. 

GREENS: Adding greens is a nice option. Try spinach, arugula or mixed greens.

Of course you want to pair some sort of crusty bread with this dish to soak up the juices. Here are some other ideas:

KALE SALAD WITH LEMON DRESSING

SHAVED BRUSSELS SPROUT SALAD

GREEN BEANS WITH BROWN BUTTER AND TOASTED ALMONDS
