This dish really guilds the lily. We start with a velvety pumpkin and ricotta mixture kissed with bright lemon in supple homemade pasta. And that’s just the beginning! Then, we toss the ravioli in heavy cream with Parmigiano-Reggiano and garden-fresh herbs.

If make-ahead meals is your thing, then this is the perfect recipe to add to your collection. The ravioli can be frozen for up to 3 months, so you always have it on hand for a quick and amazing weeknight, date night, or impromptu dinner party meal.

Before you get started, make sure you have the right tools! You’ll need a sharp chef’s knife for chopping herbs, a food processor for mixing ingredients, a pasta maker for rolling out the dough, cookie sheets for laying out the pasta, a ravioli or cookie cutter for cutting the pasta, a large pot for cooking the ravioli, a small saucepan for the sauce, and a wooden spoon for stirring the sauce.

Don’t have a pasta machine? No worries! Just grab a rolling pin and check out these tips from Bon Appetit. And if you really want to cook like an Italian, be sure to stock your kitchen with these essential Italian cooking tools!

Now round up your ingredients and let’s dig in!
