Here is a easy butternut squash ravioli recipe. I had some squash in the pantry yet and wanted to use some of them up. I love these things, easy to grow and store great,  I think people underestimate the lonely squash 🙁

Image

I peeled them and and cut them in half

Image

and removed the pulp and seeds

Image

I chopped them up

Image

and melted a slab of butter

Image

and dumped in the squash to saute it

Image

hmm wat do

Image

pumpkin and squash is a natural anti-parasitic for chickens, besides they will eat just about anything, so I took it out to my girls

Image

I was blown away by the sunset as I was walking back to the house, sometimes you just got to stop and look at the sky

Image

anyways, back to our story, I had saved the bacon drippings from the breakfast i had made the night before, so I threw some garlic in it and turned it on low to heat up

Image

while I was in the chicken coop, I snagged some eggs

Image

and made a hollow in the middle of the flour and cracked the eggs into it

Image

I whisked up the pasta dough

Image

the squash was all done cooking

Image

I dumped it in a bowl and added a 1/4 cup of honey

Image

I broke out the hand mixer

Image

and pureed it up

Image

I cut a quarter of the dough and rolled it out

Image

Image

and grabbed my ravioli maker

Image

I draped the dough over the form

Image

I took the press and formed the ravioli

Image

Image

I put a small spoonfull of squash in each one

Image

and laid another sheet of pasta on top

Image

using a rolling pin, you want to roll the top with pressure back and forth till you see the grooves of the form showing through

Image

trim the excess, this goes in with the dough set aside to be reused

Image

flip the form over and gently press them out, you can use a knife to cut apart any that are sticking

Image

flour a pan so they don’t stick

Image

and repeat the process, I was able to get 36 portions

Image

I got a pan of water boiling and set about a dozen in the water

Image

after several minutes, they will start to float and remove them and strain them

Image

since water and grease don’t mix, I gently set 5 in the middle of the pan that has a higher point that doesn’t have a lot of grease on it and fry up 5 pieces

Image

once they stop popping, I slide them to the outer edge of the pan flipping them and set 5 more in the middle, and just continue the process

Image

after they start browning, I pull them out of the pan and drain them on paper towels

Image

a little salt and pepper and your good to go
