The recipe comes from a book called "Italy the Beautiful" by Lorenza Di'Medici.
If you ever run across a copy buy it if only for the pictures, truly a sumptuous read !
We made homemade ravioli with pumpkin filling and a sage butter sauce. To die for ....The filling is roasted pumpkin, pecorino romano cheese and wait for it... crushed amaretti cookies. Yummmmm. A simple sauce of browned butter sauteed sage leaves and a dash of cheese as a topping completed the delicious meal. Do yourself a favor if only once in your life, grab your kids, your husband or a friend and make homemade pasta. Have some Prosecco while you are making it. It's well worth the effort.
