I’ve been waiting all September to share this recipe. I promised no pumpkin until October. And aside from that pumpkin cream cold brew, I really did mean it.

But, it’s now October, so bring on every last pumpkin recipe from now through November. I have so many ideas!!

This ravioli is the perfect way to welcome October and the official start to pumpkin season!

This pumpkin ravioli is easy – start with the ravioli

For the ravioli, you’ll need a good pumpkin and cheese ravioli. I recommend the Trader Joe’s pumpkin ravioli. They roast the pumpkin with a little honey and it’s such a delicious store-bought option!

Since we don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, I opted to make my own ravioli. You can of course do this too. But if you want a super quick dinner, use the TJ pumpkin ravioli.

For my homemade ravioli oil, I made a pumpkin pasta dough. I then made a honey’d pumpkin cheese filling with a mix of ricotta cheese, gouda, and a small amount of honey – to play up the sweetness. So delicious.

Either homemade or store-bought, the ravioli will be delicious. Do what works best for you!

Onto the sage butter sauce

I love a simple sage butter sauce in the fall, it’s so easy to make, and so delicious.

You’ll need butter, walnuts, fresh sage, and a splash of either apple cider or white wine. Cook the butter, walnuts, and sage together until the sage leaves are crispy and the walnuts are toasted.

I like to remove the sage leaves so they stay crisp, and then add the splash of cider or wine. I love how the cider pairs with the flavors of the pumpkin, but wine is great too.

Then simmer the sauce and toss in the ravioli. I like to let the ravioli sit in the sauce and really soak it up for a minute or so.

Now serve it up

Serve the ravioli and sauce with lots of fresh manchego cheese plus all those crispy sage leaves. Then enjoy!

It’s every bit as delicious as it sounds.

If you’re using store-bought ravioli, or have homemade frozen ravioli on hand, this entire meal will come together in well under thirty minutes, making it perfect for any night of the week. Whether you need a quick weeknight meal, or just a fun Saturday dinner party dish, this recipe accommodates.

And with that, happy Monday, and happy October! Really hoping this recipe brings you guys some much-needed pumpkin goodness this week. A little cheesy, but also just how I am feeling. Livin’ up every minute of autumn!

Pumpkin Pasta

Pumpkin Cheese Filling


  • 1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the pumpkin, eggs, flour, and salt. Using the dough hook, knead until the dough forms a ball, adding more flour as needed. Alternately, this can be mixed by hand. Cover and let rest 10-15 minutes.
    3. To make the filling. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until evenly mixed. Season with salt and pepper.
    4. Dump the dough out onto a floured surface and cut into quarters. Roll the pasta dough into lasagna sheets. Place 2 teaspoons of filling one inch apart over half the pasta sheets. Brush around the filling with water to moisten and then fold the sheet over the filling, pressing down to seal. Cut into squares. Be sure to keep the ravioli covered as you work to prevent them from drying out. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Transfer the ravioli onto the prepared baking sheet. If not cooking right away, cover, and refrigerate for up to 4 hours or freeze.
    5. Drop the ravioli into the boiling water and cook until al dente, 3-4 minutes. Drain.

    Oops! Forgot to mention that the recipe for the raviolis themselves can’t be accessed once the recipe is saved. I had to keep coming back to your collection of recipes to get to the ravioli recipe. Thought you’d like to know.

    So delicious! But it seems that the pasta recipe makes way more pasta than filling. I made raviolis over Thanksgiving using up all the filling, and still had pasta leftover which I froze and made more raviolis with today. And still more pasta leftover! Regardless, this is a delicious recipe.

    This pasta dough was just not right. I went light on the cup of pumpkin thinking it would run too wet, and it still needed about a cup more flour. After resting it had the consistency of bread dough, so needed even more flour and salt. It oozed and broke in the rollers and took a ton of laminating to make a usable pasta sheet. The filling was delicious. It’s probably just me, but it was not a successful recipe.

    1. Hey Erin! I’m so sorry this recipe wasn’t a success for you! Thank you for letting me know! Anything else I can do to help? xT

  4. Do you think the ravioli can be made ahead of time and frozen? I’ve made fresh ravioli before but have never tried freezing them.

    You should really edit this to say that it’s a sauce, I’m looking to make the ravioli AND the sauce- not just a herbed, acidic butter sauce.

    1. Hi there,
      Both the sauce and the ravioli recipes are listed above:) Please let me know if I can help in any other way! xx

    Fast dinner if you have frozen raviolis, paired it with a side salad. Don’t skimp on the walnuts and fresh sage, those make it even more delicious! My kids even liked this.

    1. Hey Stephany,
      Happy Friday!!⛄️ Thanks so much for making this dish and sharing your review, so glad to hear it was a hit! xx
