The pasta dough is simply 5 eggs, 1 tablespoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of olive oil & 3 cups of all-purpose flour. If you own a pasta maker, this will be easy. If not, you'll get to do this by hand like me! (:

In a small bowl, beat the eggs, salt & olive oil. In a large bowl, place the flour and pour in the egg mixture. Stir with a fork and fold together until all of the egg mixture is absorbed and the dough forms into a sticky ball. Flour your hands and divide the dough into 3 separate ones. Knead each dough a bit to form it into a ball. Cover each in cellophane and refrigerate for a few hours.

Roll out the ball of dough as flat as you can get it. I cut mine into squares with a knife, but you could use a cookie cutter for a different shape or to get it more exact. I liked mine imperfect... rustic. (;

After you've cut the dough into squares, it helped me to roll each square a bit more before scooping on the pumpkin mixture. Place another square on top, and using a fork, press the two pieces of dough together at the edges, which creates a pretty border.

For the simple pumpkin filling: 1 can of pumpkin, 1 cup of Pecorino {or Ricotta}, 2 Teaspoons of Nutmeg, 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon, and a dash of salt and pepper.

Once you've finished putting together the raviolis, place them in a pot of well sea-salted boiling water until they rise to the top. About 3-4 minutes. Carefully scoop them out into a colander to drain.

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Just before it starts to brown, add fresh rosemary and thyme leaves stirring until the butter slightly browns. Pour over raviolis... take a deep breath before you inhale the whole plate... and enjoy!
