 Ingredients - Butternut Squash Ravioli

 Ravioli (above)

1 Cube Unsalted Butter

4-6 Italian Almond Biscotti broken into small pieces

10-12 Fresh Sage Leaves

Italian Parsley to garnish

Instructions - Butternut Squash Ravioli

  • Boil a large pot of water and salt like the sea.
  • In a separate, small pot, melt 1 cube of unsalted butter on a low heat until it browns. Add about 8-10 fresh sage leaves and let cook with butter.
  • Place biscotti in Ziplock bag and pound them with a spoon or something heavy to break them into small pieces and set aside.
  • Once water is boiling, carefully place the ravioli in the water (you can do this in batches if you have a lot).
  • Put a frying pan on another burner and heat while ravioli are cooking on Med/High. Once ravioli are almost ready, add a little of the browned butter and sage to the hot pan.
  • Let boil until dough is al dente, well cooked with a little bit of a bite.
  • Take ravioli out with a slotted spoon and add a serving at a time to the frying pan and let brown on each side, just about a minute max on each side.
  • Pour out of pan onto plate, add a little more butter and sage sauce, sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and biscotti. Top with Italian Parsley and enjoy.
