A Cool Weather Rerun: Mascarpone Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Butter and Sage

I saw a great looking butternut squash today at the market, but for whatever reason I didn't buy it. Later in the afternoon I was checking some files on YouTube when I came across the pasta recipe below – my video for butternut squash ravioli!

There it was, mocking me and my lack of butternut squash with which to make it. So, I decided to do the next best thing and repost it. It's a great recipe and perfect for this time of year. By the way, you freakishly small wooden spoon fans will be happy to know le petit bois makes an appearance. Enjoy!



Here is the link to the original post complete with ingredients!

They are called mezzelune, litterally half moons.

Chef John said...

Yes, if I didn't call them ravioli, I would have totally called them mezzelune. Maybe Hav-Ravs?

Chef John said...

Just a quick admission. Sometimes I use a word like "ravioli," instead of "mezzelune" for SEO purposes. People are seaching as much for mezzelune recipes on google as ravioli. Same goes for words like barbecue. ;-)

What does dried sage taste like?

Chef John said...

Like fresh only mustier. You really need fresh sage for this recipe

Holy yummyness!!!
So very very good! And easy but we don't have to tell my hubby that right? He was SO impressed with me, hee. My eight year old loved them as well. Thank you Chef John for another winner :).

John, you should sell a "Chef John's Freakishly Small Wooden Spoon". I think it would be a big hit. Just sayin.

These are *amazing*! The mascarpone makes it taste nice and rich, and the squash flavor come through. Everyone loved these.

You may want to try using fresh marjoram leaves instead of sage. Marjoram has a bright, astringency that won't sucker-punch you in the mouth like sage.

I had some great butternut squash ravioli the other day at a restaurant, so I came online and search for recipes. You have no idea how glad I found out foodwishes had this, because I trust every recipe you post Chef John!

Making these tonight, thank you!!!

Can you suggest a different cheese that might make this more of an entree? Thanks.
