  • Yield: Yields about 18 large ravioli 1x



  • Filling
  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 1 ounce blue cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pasta
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour or unbleached all-purpose
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 56 sage leaves, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 425˚. Slice butternut squash in half and remove seeds. Place cut-side down in a roasting pan and fill with water, about 1/4″ up the side. Roast until butternut squash is tender, 35-45 minutes (depending on size.) Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  2. While butternut squash is baking, Combine whole wheat flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a clean surface. Make a well, add two eggs, and 3 tablespoons of water. Using a fork, whisk eggs and slowly begin to incorporate flour.
  3. Continue to incorporate flour and a paste will soon form. Continue to mix (eventually ditching the fork for your hands) and knead dough into a smooth ball.
  4. Let sit for 20-30 minutes.
  5. Once ready to assemble, scoop out butternut squash and measure about 1 1/2 cups and place in a bowl. Add blue cheese, salt, and pepper; stirring until mixture is well combined.
  6. Using a pasta attachment or rolling pin, roll out pasta. Pasta should be thin but still hold together. Measure out ravioli (if you have a cutter). Spoon mixture 1 hefty tablespoon for each ravioli. Fold dough over and crimp.
  7. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Adding 3-4 ravioli at a time, cook until ravioli float to the top (5-6 minutes.) Remove and continue with remaining ravioli.
  8. Melt butter with olive oil in a large pan. Add shallots and cook until soft, 5-6 minutes. Toss the sage into the pan, along with the cooked ravioli, and cook for 1-2 minutes until everything is well combined.
