1 Tablespoon oil
2 cups pumpkin
½ cup shaved parmesan (1 up total recipe)
100 grams ricotta cheese
Teaspoon basil
Teaspoon oregano
1 small clove garlic
Salt and pepper to season

1 egg (for egg wash)

To make the ravioli; Dice pumpkin and roast for approximately 25 minutes in the oil, in a baking tray in a moderate oven (180 C). Cool and mix with the chopped basil, crushed garlic, chopped oregano, garlic, cheeses and a little salt and pepper.
Make the pasta by putting the flour in the food processor, or in a bowl, while blending add  eggs to form firm dough. If the mix is wet knead more flour in on a floured bench. Then roll the pasta through the pasta machine up to number 5. Lay the sheets of pasta on the floured bench put teaspoon size balls of the mix, neatly, on one side of the pasta about 8 cm apart then brush the other side of the pasta with egg wash, fold over pressing around the mix, then cut with the ravioli cutter.

Cook for approximately 4 minutes in salted boiling water, (This can be done earlier, even the day before, and cooled, and rolled in a little oil, then the pasta reheated in boiling water when serving the dish).

To serve the dish: crush the garlic and shred the sage. Heat the butter in a large heavy base pan on a medium heat until the butter froths, sauté  garlic and sage. Heat the ravioli for 1 minute in boiling water and toss through the ravioli and mussels and serve immediately topped with the parmesan.
