Ravioli with Cashew Spinach Ricotta

24 Feb Ravioli with Cashew Spinach Ricotta

I don’t think I’ve ever been one to shy away from my love of carbs (except for during a brief Atkins diet period in the early 2000s.) There is just something wonderful about fresh homemade pasta. I will pretty much eat any pasta, but homemade pasta is something otherworldly. I discovered this recipe for homemade pasta from Vegan Dad years ago and I’ve used it pretty consistently since then. One of my favorite recipes for ravioli is filled with butternut squash, but it’s not really squash season anymore.

We love this cashew spinach ricotta in my vegan lasagna recipe, so I knew it would be a hit here.  I added a touch of miso paste this time around, but it’s totally optional so if you don’t have any, don’t fret.

Butternut Squash Ravioli in Sage Butter Sauce

In the month of September, Ken and I attended 3 weddings, with one weekend off to relax. Being vegan, we don’t usually expect to be accommodated at large events like this, but surprisingly at all three we had something to eat. I’ve been craving another taste of one of the meals-a butternut squash ravioli. I’m guessing it was Rising Moon brand, just by the size and shape. My local natural food store usually carries it, but homemade ravioli sounded like a perfect endeavor on this cold Sunday.
