    I think the pumpkin cream sauce is my favorite part of this whole post… actually, the whole post is just jaw droppin’ amazing!

    It looks like so much work, but to make your own ravioli, I think it may just be worth it! Great job!

  2. I am in complete awe and also jealous of that KitchenAid pasta-making attachment. Pumpkin and/or Butternut Squash ravioli are my autumn lovefest. And that BRIE!! We need the brie recipe for Gossip Girl Mondays I think. Gina can be in charge.

    • @ToKissTheCook, Looks great ladies, take it from an Italian-American with more years than I care to mention in the kitchen. Love your style, but just a bit of advice on the equipment. I use a ravioli form. I have two, one for 12 at a time and one for 2.5″ large ravioli 10 at a time. You can find them at Fante’s in Philly (http://www.fantes.com/index.html), and they are the least expensive on the net. As to the KitchenAid attachment. Allow me to dissuade you from making such an expensive purchase in favor of the Marcato Atlas 150 or 180 (I have both) and two KitchenAid stand mixers as well. With the Atlas machines (the world’s most popular) you have precise control plus two cutting heads for about $70 (150) and $90 (180). Additional cutting heads are anywhere from $30 to maybe $50 (stay away from the ravioli maker). Moreover, if you have children or grandchildren (like me… 5 little ones from 9 mos. to 3 years who love to cook with Grampa), the human dynamic is not lost on the mechanization of the process. I know it sounds silly, but there is something quite spiritual about making pasta from scratch with children. I did it with my grandmothers, my father, even my sisters and brothers with the Atlas machines.

      Needless to say, I made this recipe…it was great. Check out my cookbook coming out in the spring: “My Father’s Book Of Southern Italian Peasant Food”.

    OMG! I love pumpkin but I’m not sure mine would turn out half as good as yours did considering I have a hard time boiling water! ๐Ÿ™‚


  8. Love the recipes!!! Seems like you had a nice afternoon making this Ravioli. Keep it comin!

  9. Love the picture of Diane. Pregnant women are so beautiful!

  10. ummm…that looks unbelievably good!!! my mouth is watering.

  11. What a terrific fall menu! I look forward to trying the recipe. You make it seem so easy. The sauce recipe is great, but since I do not eat dairy, I wonder if I could substitute soy creamer? I’ll let you know how it works!

  12. That looks fantastic! I love cooking with friends. It is such a fun way to spend the afternoon and it gives us time to catch up!

  13. Can you come cook at my house? I don’t think I’m talented enough to pull that off…

  14. What a gorgeous fall meal!

  15. What a fantastic dinner party! That looks like a high end, restaurant quality meal ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. This is a great post! I have tried to make my own pumpkin ravioli and have horribly failed multiple times. I may give this a try.

  17. your dish looks dee-lish! easy to vegan-ize, too! thanks!

  18. It definitely looks delicious and I am super impressed. Your friend’s little baby bump is the cutest.

    Hi, I’ve been lurking your blog for a while now and made this sauce last night to go with some pumpkin and ricotta pasta I found. It was just perfect! Beautifully light yet creamy with just a hint of something different. It’s definitely going on my favourites list ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Holy yum, this pasta looks amazing!

    PS – I love the grey short sleeved sweater you are wearing, Sabrina. Mind sharing where you purchased it?

  23. My brother suggested I might like this web site. He
    was entirely right. This post actually made my
    day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time
    I had spent for this information! Thanks!
