Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce Recipe
I usually make this Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce recipe in the fall when I have leftover pumpkin from Thanksgiving--but, since I found a can of pumpkin hanging out in the cupboard today with a summer expiration date, I decided that today was as good a day as any!  We will using this recipe as our Blogging from A to Z Challenge submission.  R is for Ravioli today!

I will be honest--two of our girls are not fans of the pumpkin sauce.  Of course, they are not pumpkin fans in general--in any form.  I usually pull out a few servings of ravioli and top it with a tomato sauce for them when I make this dish!

Ingredients for Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce Recipe
1 tsp. Butter
1 tsp. Olive Oil
1/4 c. Yellow Onion, finely chopped
1 c. Portobello Mushrooms, finely chopped
1 clove Garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. Flour
1 12 oz. can Evaporated Milk
1 15.5 oz can Pumpkin puree
1/8 tsp. Cinnamon
1/8 tsp. Ground Ginger
1/8 tsp. Nutmeg
1/8 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
Frozen Cheese Ravioli  (Sauce makes enough for 2 1 1/2 pound bags of ravioli)

Instructions for Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce Recipe

Saute Vegetables.  In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and heat it with the olive oil until hot.  Add the onion, mushroom, and garlic.  Saute until vegetables are tender--about 3-5 minutes.

Prepare the Pumpkin Sauce.  Add the flour directly to the vegetables in the saucepan.  Stir to coat the vegetables in the flour.  Add the milk and whisk with a wire whisk until combined.  Add the pumpkin.  Whisk to combine and stir until mixture is slightly thickened.  Remove from heat--but, keep warm.

Cook the Ravioli.  Boil the ravioli according to the package instructions and drain.

Plate and serve.  Place the desired amount of ravioli onto a plate or in a bowl.  Top with a ladle of pumpkin sauce.  Garnish with shredded Parmesan Cheese.  Serve warm with salad, a green vegetable and garlic bread.
