A quick and satisying meal in minutes!
Ingredients
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Green onions 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs), sliced
  Garlic cloves 2 , minced
  Fennel seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Evaporated milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Flour 1 Tablespoon
  Kosher salt To Taste
  Pumpkin puree 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Canned)
  Kosher salt To Taste (For The Pasta Water)
  Cheese ravioli 18 Ounce
  Grated parmesan 2 Tablespoon (For Garnish)
Directions

Put a large pot of water on to boil. Add the olive oil, green onions, garlic, and the fennel seeds to a medium sauté pan. Sauté until the onions are tender and the fennel seeds are fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the evaporated skim milk, flour, and the salt and pepper. Pour into the pan, add the pumpkin and stir until smooth. Reduce heat and simmer gently while preparing the ravioli.

Generously salt the water when it comes to the boil and cook the ravioli according to the package directions. Fresh pasta cooks in about 2 minutes, so whatever you do, don’t abandon it. Drain the pasta and generously spoon the sauce over it. Embellish with plenty of grated Parmesan.

Story
I’m not Italian, but I love pasta! Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce is one of my favorites for a quick lunch or dinner. I had something similar at a restaurant in L.A. and I was so smitten, I came home and tried to re-create it from taste memory. This is what I came up with.

I gave it a shot. This pumpkin ravioli rocks seriously.

Kabocha (small Japanese pumpkins) have so much flavour and are perfect for this so you don't have gobs of extra pumpkin. Love pumpkin filled raviolis also.

One of my {newest} favorites! The best veg tempura, ever! :) "The craft of questions, the craft of stories, the craft of the hands - all these are the making of something, and that something is soul. Anytime we feed soul, it guarantees increase." -- Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.
