Paul and I love to watch the competitions on Iron Chef America and to guess who will win before the judging! We were watching it last night and someone served a Pumpkin Ravioli with a browned butter sauce, which got me to thinking. I'd heard about this dish before and have always been intrigued by a savory pumpkin ravioli, but now my wheels were turning... I figured the pierogi dough I knew how to make would be a perfect way to package up the little scoops of pumpkin, since it was savory and had sour cream in the dough, it would pair well.
I only made a very small batch because honestly, I didn't know how I'd like it and I really didn't know how Paul would like it. So, I decided to do a trial run... I made my dough, rolled it as thin as I could, made my filling and then as they boiled, then I browned my butter & sage. Boy, oh boy...this turned out so delicious, the sage worked so well with the pumpkin filling and the filling mixture was a great consistency. Paul raved about them, commenting how fancy the dish was and how he would eat these anytime. Looks like I whipped up a winner! I'll definitely make a much larger batch next time and possibly for entertaining!
