Home-made Pumpkin Ravioli with Hazelnut Cream Sauce


  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2/3 Cup Water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 T olive oil

Mix all ingredients together until dough comes together in a ball.  Kneed on floured surface until smooth. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.  Roll out into sheets (or use hand crank pasta machine – Pull off small chuck (about 1/8th of ball) flour well and run through on 1st /largest setting, re-flour, fold into thirds and run through the 2nd setting, repeat until the desired thickness – we use #5 on our machine) if it’s too thin then the fillings seems to seep out.  Once in strip and desired thickness, cut into squares, fill with pumpkin filling and fold, be sure to press together edges well so filling doesn’t escape.  Place on flat floured surface until ready to cook – DO NOT stack on top of each other or they will stick and rip.   Once ready to cook, place 5 or 6 raviolis into boiling water. Wait until raviolis start to float (about 30 secs) and take out of water with slotted spoon.

REVIEW: Vegan Samoas

Recipe found on VegNews:


Well, after 5 hours of mixing, baking, waiting, heating, stirring, coating, waiting…. I’d say these cookies are good.  Not great, not bad, but good.   Would I happily eat and enjoy them – yes!  Would I spend the time and effort to make them a second time – definitely not!
