Sweet Potato Ravioli


As the weather gets cooler Ive been really craving pasta. I'm not much of a pasta person, so I pay attention when these cravings hit. The other day while out to lunch I ordered sweet potato, arugula and walnut pasta salad. The combination of the sweet potato with the pasta was incredible. The following day I made these sweet potato raviolis for din din. They were a big hit, using won ton wrappers instead of rolling out fresh pasta made life much easier.

  • 1 large sweet potato, (1 lb 2 oz) peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 6 to 8 oz butter
  • 1/2 ts sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 cup grated parm cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon of chopped chives
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 9oz packet won ton wrappers (look for the thin ones)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh sage, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped walnuts

Cook the chopped sweet potato and lemon juice in a sauce pan of boiling water. This took about 20 minutes till the potato was tender. Drain and cool. Blend sweet potato and 1 oz of butter in food processor till smooth. Add parm, chopped chives and 1/2 of mixed egg. Season with salt and pepper. Brush egg mixture around edges of several won ton wrappers. Put 2 teaspoons of sweet potato mixture in the center of the won ton. Top with another won ton, pressing edges firmly together.

Cook the ravioli in salted boiling water. This just takes about 2 minutes, as you want them al dente.

Melt the remaining butter in sauce pan, cook till lightly golden. Add sage leaves, allow them to crisp up a bit. Drain raviolis, add them to browned butter and sage for a quick toss. Serve immediately grated parm and chopped walnuts.

  13. We had ravioli once where they used thinly sliced portabello as the wrapper, and a filling, not that it stayed together all that well, but it was good... Yours looks great and I have wonton wrappers in the freezer, not sure why I have not done this...

    I have been wanting to make ravioli with won ton skins, ever since I saw Giada De Laurenttis making this. I love sweet potatoes, so I can already tell that this would be fantastic. The salad you described sounded delicious in itself.
