my little dumpling

ok, not dumpling, ravioli.  
For Steven's birthday I made ravioli again, this time with butternut squash with a walnut, sage butter sauce.  As I was getting things ready this afternoon I was listening to the Splendid Table on the radio and a caller asked about how to make butternut squash ravioli even more delicious!  

Lynne Rossetto Kasper recommended adding one sweet potato to the butternut squash to make the filling sweeter and meatier so that is what I did.  
For the raviolis: 1 butternut squash and one sweet potato mashed up with some ricotta and a caramelized onion.  
for the sauce: walnuts and sage sauteed in butter with a little bit of cream.  
I hope it was a happy birthday, Steven!
