Butternut Squash Ravioli with Kale Pesto + 2 Sale Pieces

You guys I made ravioli and it was so good!!  Before Christmas, I was in a bit of a cooking rut and this recipe re-inspired me.  To make the ravioli you use wonton shells and I was surprised how similar to regular pasta it was once they cooked.  Take note this recipe is not hard but it does require a few steps and a little extra time.  Two things you could do ahead — make the pesto and the butternut filling.   You could also just regular store-bought pesto if you don’t want to make your own.

  I used these biscuit cutters to make the circles.

I still eventually want to buy a pasta maker but for now, I am so glad to know that wonton shells work perfectly. Next time I may try a sweet potato filling! Enjoy!
