I am a big fan of butternut squash. During the winter months I have butternut squash soup made up and in the freezer. Today I wanted to try my hand at making homemade ravioli. I love pasta, but have never attempted it.
I used a few herbs from the garden, like sage, but also used my Young Living Essential Vitality™ Oils.
Here is the recipe I used :
1 butternut squash
I peeled and removed the seeds. Cut it into small cubes then place them on a cookie sheet. Then toss them with few tablespoons of olive oil, and add salt and pepper.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes or until they are fork tender. My squash was about a half pound so it might take longer if it bigger.
I put the squash in my food processor to blend and cool.
I added 1 drop of Nutmeg Essential Oil,
1 drop of Cinnamon Bark,
then salt and pepper to taste.
Now for the pasta!
This is what I used. You can buy this at most local stores.
I followed the directions, but since I don’t have a pasta maker, I rolled it out.
The dough kept shrinking! Boy did my arms get a workout! Keep rolling it until you are happy with the thinness or thickness you like. sidenote: maybe I need an attachment for my Kitchen Aid!!!
So then I took my little 3″ cookie cutter and made enough pieces for me to fill with the butternut squash mixture. Use 2 pieces of your dough and press them together with the filling inside. Seal them with a fork on the edges, then brush on the egg wash.
While I was waiting for the 3 quarts of salted water to boil, I started on my sage butter sauce.
In a large saute pan, melt 8 tablespoons of butter. ( 1 stick of unsalted butter)
Add the fresh sage to the butter and continue to cook it until brown. Don’t let it burn!
I did not have enough fresh sage so I used my Young Living sage essential oil. I put 3 drops in my butter sauce after it had browned.
I placed my ravioli in the boiling salted water. When they start to float, I placed them on my platter. Then pour the sage butter sauce over them! It smells like heaven! I think it is about time to eat!
Here is mine! It turned out awesome, so sweet and savory!
