How to make fresh pumpkin ravioli

Indulge yourself with a classic Italian pasta dish from our sister village in Fidenza. Their Tortelli di Zucca (Pumpkin ravioli) is a little bowl of heaven that originates from the Parma region. Make sure to garnish with plenty of fresh parmesan!

TO MAKE THE PASTA AND THE FILLING

PASTA
  1. Mix 200g of plain flour with two eggs and one tsp of olive oil until it forms a dough.
  2. Rest the dough by placing in a bowl covered with cling film and place in the fridge for two hours.
  3. Once ready, roll out the dough to create a 2mm sheet of pasta.
FILLING
  1. Bake the pumpkin in the oven for one hour at 180°C or 350°F.
  2. Add 100g of crumbled amaretti biscuits (approx. three), a tsp of mustard and one beaten egg into a bowl.
  3. Remove the pumpkin from the skin and add the biscuit mix, 70g of Parmigiano Reggiano and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
