- For the pumpkin ricotta filling, mix the pumpkin puree, 8 oz. ricotta, 1 large organic egg, 2 ½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice, 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon lemon pepper, and ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg in a medium bowl and stir well to combine. Refrigerate while making pasta.
- For the ravioli, add the 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour and 1 teaspoon kosher salt to a food processor fitted with a plastic blade and pulse the flour and salt together.
- Add 3 large eggs and 1 tablespoon olive oil and, with the motor running, add water until the dough hula hoops in the bowl.
- Dust a work surface with flour and knead the dough for 1 minute, or until it forms a smooth ball, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, remove pasta from the refrigerator and divide into 8 equal pieces.
- Run the pasta through the largest setting of a pasta maker and repeat. Then reduce the setting and run the pasta through twice. Repeat, until the pasta is approximately 1/8-inch thick.
- Place each piece of rolled pasta on a cookie sheet, and cover loosely with a lightly damp paper towel to keep from drying out.
- When all the pasta is rolled out, start assembling the ravioli.
- Place one sheet of pasta on a flat and lightly floured work surface.
- Place 1 teaspoonful dollops of the filling 2-inches apart on the pasta. Cover with another piece of the pasta.
- Use a ravioli or cookie cutter to cut out the ravioli, then firmly crimp all the edges with the tine of a fork to seal.
- Place the pasta on a parchment lined cookie sheet while assembling the rest of the ravioli.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook ravioli for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they float and are cooked though.
- For the sauce, add 1¼ cups heavy cream to a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a light simmer.
- Stir in ½ cup grated parmesan, 2 tablespoons roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley, 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt and simmer gently until the cheese is melted.
- Divide sauce and cooked ravioli between two bowls, garnish with additional parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
- To store extra ravioli, place on a cookie sheet covered with plastic wrap and freeze ravioli in a single layer for 3 to 4 hours. Once frozen, they can be transferred to a plastic bag and stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
