Pumpkin ravioli with sage

Ravioli may be time-consuming to make, but they can be made ahead and stored wrapped in plastic wrap between layers of baking paper in the fridge, ready for the pot; just make sure you dust them with semolina to keep them dry and prevent them from sticking. We've used butternut here - true to its name, it's rich and creamy and will yield the perfect texture for this luxe ravioli.

“I tried the most comforting chorizo, chicken and vegetable soup while travelling through Orange at Belgravia at Union Bank. It was so chunky I could eat it with a fork. Would you ask chef Scott Want for the recipe?”
James Parry, Surry Hills, NSW
