I made some penne pasta to add to the ravioli in case that it wasn’t going to be enough for both of us to eat. We also made garlic toast.

I thought for sure as soon as Mike took the first bite, he was going to hate it. He likes pumpkin but he is not a pumpkin fanatic like I am. He doesn’t really enjoy pumpkin when it’s in savory things. He likes it when it’s in sweet things like desserts or breakfasts. I was shocked when he said how much he really liked it! The filling of the ravioli tasted almost like pumpkin pie. You could taste hints of cinnamon and luckily, you couldn’t taste much nutmeg. I HATE nutmeg with a passion! I will not cook with it or eat anything that contains it. I hate the flavor and the smell. I was thankful that I couldn’t taste it at all in this pasta!
The butternut squash sauce paired perfectly with the pumpkin ravioli. It wasn’t too sweet which I was afraid of. It the taste of butternut squash and tomato paste which was included in the ingredients. It also contains milk. It wasn’t too heavy of a sauce and it was a nice change from your typical pasta sauces. I really enjoyed this meal. It was something different. Do you enjoy pumpkin in savory dishes or do you prefer sweet when using pumpkin?
That’s all I have for today. I am planning on doing more of our wedding recaps very soon. I’m hoping to possibly do one over the weekend again or post it on Monday. So stay tuned for that!
Have a great Friday!
