Fall is coming!

Fall is coming~ Eat like an Italian!!

Fried Pumpkin Ravioli (need vegetable oil for frying, and powdered sugar for dusting)

Ravioli Dough:
1 c. Flour
2 egg yolks
2 Tbs butter, softened
2 Tbs milk
1 Tbs sugar
1Tbs Sambuca
zest of 1/4 lemon

1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/2 c. ricotta cheese
1/4 c. sugar
2 Amaretti cookies, finely crushed
1/2 tsp vanilla

Dough: Combine all ingredients in food processor until soft dough forms. Put dough in small bowl and cover. Let sit and rest about an hour.

Filling: Mix all ingredients at once.

Puttin' it togetha: Roll out dough in two long sheets, about 4" wide and 1/4 " thick. Put big 'ol teaspoons full of filling all the way down the middle of the sheet, at least one inch from each end and 2" apart. Cover the pasta & filling with the other sheet of pasta. Make sure you push around each mound of pumpkin into the dough, so that it sticks together. You can use a pretty pasta cutter to roll & cut each square of ravioli, or you can use a knife to make your ravioli squares. Just make sure you seal all sides of the squares with a fork. Deep fry the ravioli's in hot oil until very light brown. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Hot or cold, they are Yum~O!!
