Halloween ravioli in Italy

Pumpkin is the traditional ingredient for Halloween. I enjoy pumping as ravioli filling.

This is the recipe I use:


For the dough

  • 150 gr of 00 flower
  • 50 of durum wheat fine semolina
  • 2 free range eggs


Mix all the ingredient until you obtain a hard dough. You can use a food processor or your hands and mix until all the flower is combined.

For the filling

  • 150 gr of pumpkin
  • 30 gr of parmesan cheese
  • 1 small chilli chopped
  • 1 thinly chopped spring onion
  • grated nutmeg


  • Roast the pumpkin for around 30 minutes until it is soft. Let it cool.
  • Puree the pumpkin in a food processor.
  • Add the chopped spring onion, the small chilli and the parmesan cheese.

Once your pasta dough and your filling are ready you can start preparing your ravioli.


  • Open the pasta dough in a thin sheet as shown here below:


  • place a small teaspoon of filling.
  • cut the pasta dough in small squares.
  • fold the pasta dough in triangles.
  • boil the ravioli for 3-5 minutes with some salt.

You can serve this dish with yellow tomato sauce and chives


You can also serve these ravioli with melted butter, grated nutmeg and parmesan cheese.

Enjoy 🙂
