Pumpkin Ravioli

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Cooking Time: 16 to 20 minutes

250 ml (1 cup) pumpkin puree

15 ml (1 tbsp) butter, cut into tiny pieces

7 ml (1 1/2 tsp) cornmeal

5 ml (1 tsp) crumbled dried sage

2 ml (1/2 tsp) dried thyme

Salt and pepper, to taste

36 wonton wrappers

1 egg, beaten

50 ml (1/4 cup) butter, melted

30 ml (2 tbsp) chopped fresh parsley

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, butter, cornmeal, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Working with 6 wrappers at a time, brush edges lightly with egg. Place heaping 5 ml (1 tsp) of the pumpkin mixture in the centre of each. Fold over into triangle and press edges to seal well. Place on a baking sheet and cover with damp tea towel; repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.

In a large pot of boiling water, cook ravioli, in 4 batches, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes per batch. Remove with a slotted spoon; gently toss with butter and parsley. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
