Sweet Potato Ravioli with Browned Butter and Crispy Herbs

Serves 6-8


For Ravioli:

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon Winter Spice Seasoning

salt and freshly ground pepper

4 sheets pasta dough, 12 to 14 inches long by 4 inches wide

1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water

For Brown Butter Sauce:

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

1/2 cup chopped pecans

7 sage leaves, chiffonade

1 tablespoon thyme leaves

1 tablespoon rosemary leaves

salt and freshly ground pepper



Make Raviolis:

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake the sweet potatoes until soft, about 1 hour. Set aside to cool.

Peel the sweet potatoes and add 2 cups potato flesh to the Vitamix. Add brown sugar, cheese, seasoning mix, and process until the mixture is smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Lay a sheet of pasta dough on a lightly floured work surface and distribute a heaping teaspoon-sized portion of the filling at least 2 inches apart. Use your fingertip to moisten the edges of the pasta sheet with the egg wash. Carefully place a second sheet of the pasta dough on top of the first and press with your fingertips to separate the rows of filling. Using a fork, press the dough along the rows to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough. With a ravioli cutter or pastry wheel, cut out ravioli squares. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Carefully drop in the raviolis and cook for about 5 minutes. Drain, plate and spoon butter sauce over and garnish with crispy herbs.

Make Brown Butter Sauce:

Melt butter in a medium sauté pan over medium heat and cook until the foam subsides and the butter begins to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add herbs and nuts, stirring 1 minute more. Remove from the heat, cool for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
