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.

    1. Hey Savannah,
      Goat cheese would also be delicious here! Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

  1. Hi there! How soon in advance could I make the filling? With the egg yolk, wondering if it’s ok to make the filling 24 hours in advance. Thanks!

    1. Hey Minda,
      Sure, that should be just fine for you to do, just keep it covered in the fridge. I hope this recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xT

    1. Hey Kate,
      I truly appreciate you making this recipe and sharing your feedback, so glad to hear it turned out well for you! xx

  2. Hi Tieghan!
    I was wondering if there is a way to make the ravioli gluten free?? Would I just use 5 cups of a different type of flour (like almond maybe?)?
    Thank you so much for your help!

    1. Hey Meagan,
      I would recommend using a gluten free flour blend like Bob’s Red Mill, that should work well for you! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx

    1. Hi Amanda,
      Happy Wednesday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks a bunch for making it! xT

  3. My roommate and I were making ravioli and we were out of mushrooms and needed another filling. So, we tried the ravioli filling in this recipe and it was the bomb! I am not a blue cheese fan but this recipe has just the right amount in it. Absolutely delicious, we will definitely be making this again!

    1. Hey Bianca,
      Perfect! I appreciate you making this recipe and sharing your feedback, I am so glad it was a hit! xx

  4. My husband bought smoked Gouda instead of plain Gouda cheese. Do you think it will make a big difference or should I get the regular Gouda?

  5. Tested good but 1/2 a cup of apple juice is hardly a “splash” of juice plus the apple vinegar. I doubled the recipe so it was a full cup. Was way too runny. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for giving this recipe a try, sorry to hear it wasn’t enjoyed. You want to be sure to use apple cider and not juice as you will have some different flavors happening. Also, for doubling the recipe you would want to let it simmer a bit longer. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan

    1. Hey Kristie,
      Awesome!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it!! Have the best week:) xTieghan

    Really delicious recipe. I love homemade pasta and this one was really great.
    Made enough dough to put in freezer for future use.
    A nice simply sauce with great flavour.

    1. Hi Helena,
      Happy Friday! Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  7. I have made the sauce several times and used TJ’s ravioli and the fam loves it. Finally ordered the kitchenaid pasts roller attachment and made the ravioli last night and it is next level. Seriously SO DAMN good and so much fun to make! Needed 3 times the amount of filling for my ravioli, but that could just be that I was rolling to a thinness level of 6 and only using 1/2 tbs. per ravioli. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

  8. 5 stars
    I’ve made this twice in the last month and it is flawless. Absolutely perfect. I follow the entire recipe, including the homemade pasta, and it’s literally the best dinner I’ve ever served. My only change is I double the butter sauce because the pasta recipe makes sooo much. Seriously best ever. Hats off.
