This didn't really have much of a pumpkin taste at all when boiling the pasta, which kind of surprised us. (I made it with my SIL for dinner tonight.) We didn't use the recipe for the pasta itself--just the filling--we made a basic egg pasta for the pasta. We had to sub mozzarella for the cheese (we forgot the pasta would need filled right away and didn't have time to run to the store). I wasn't really sure what "tender" meant in terms of the pasta, so I just winged it. It was ready in about 15-20 minutes. We also tried baking the ravioli--which took about 20 min in a 350 degree oven. They turned out really crisp, like pizza bites, and we could taste the pumpkin in those. Although the baked ones definitely need sauce when baked!--we served with spaghetti sauce, and it was good. We knew that this would take a lot of time, and we had a lot of fun making the pasta, so we thought it was worth it. My SIL, not the biggest fan of pumpkin, liked these. So did my brother and the bf. So I count it as a success. Certainly not something I'd make every day (I'm no ravioli expert by any means and don't often have that much time) but fun when you have the time to make pasta from scratch. Thanks for the recipe!
