  • ravioli press


  • Pasta Dough Recipe See link to recipe in instructions.
  • Pumpkin Filling
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp nutmeg SEE NOTE
  • 1 tsp sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • Pepper to taste
  • Sage Butter
  • 8 tbsp vegan butter we suggest Miyoko’s or Earth Balance
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 fresh sage leaves
  • Salt to taste SEE NOTE
  • Pepper to taste


  • For the Pasta Dough
  • Make the pasta dough. Click HERE for the recipe
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil
  • For the Pumpkin Filling
  • In a large bowl, stir the 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast, 1 tsp nutmeg, SEE NOTE, 1 tsp sea salt, or to taste, 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs, and pepper to taste until completely combined.
  • To Make the Ravioli
  • Divide the dough into quarters and roll out one quarter on a floured surface. Roll until it’s almost thin enough to see through.
  • Drop 1 to 2 tsp (depending on the size of ravioli you wanof filling on the edge of the dough, leaving and inch of space between the edge and each dollop.
  • Fold the dough over the filling and press the ravioli press over the center to cut out the individual pieces of the ravioli.
  • If you don’t have a press, use a sharp knife. Use the tines of a fork to press the edges down so the pasta sticks together.
  • Place the ravioli in the boiling water and cook for one minute once they’ve floated to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon.
  • For the Brown Butter Sauce
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat. Add the 8 tbsp butter, 2 sage leaves, ½ cup chopped pecans, and pepper. When the butter melts and begins to bubble, continuously whisk until it becomes golden brown. Remove from the heat and drizzle over the ravioli.
  • Enjoy!


  • A serving size for us is 4 to 6 pieces of ravioli. 
    If you’re not a big fan of nutmeg, add ½ of a tsp for a hint of the flavor.
    If the vegan butter you use to make the browned butter isn’t salted enough for you, feel free to add more salt.
