Delica pumpkin is a classic Italian flavour. All of our pumpkins are grown by Armando, our pumpkin farmer, in the Veneto region of Italy. La Tua Pasta has been working closely with Armando for over 15 years. We gently bake the Delica pumpkins with spices and blend them with a specially selected ricotta for this recipe. We have selected our signature nutmeg butter as the sauce for this subtle recipe, The butter provides the roundness while the nutmeg brings in a lovely top note to the taste of the dish. Finally, the saltiness of the Parmesan cheese balances the sweetness of the pumpkin.
250 g La Tua Pasta Pumpkin & Ricotta Ravioli
30 g La Tua Pasta Nutmeg Butter
30 g Parmigiano Reggiano
In a large sauce pan add 1 litre of salted water for every 100g of pasta. For 250g of pasta add 2.5 litres of water
Bring the water to a gentle boil and put in the ravioli
Cook for 3 ? 4 minutes depending on preference
Gently melt the nutmeg butter in a in a frying pan without burning and transfer the ravioli using a slotted spoon making sure that some of the starchy pasta water makes into the pan with the nutmeg butter. (The starchy pasta water is the secret to getting a good coating of the butter on the ravioli). You can always add 1 tablespoon of pasta water after if you would like.
