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.
