{July 10, 2010}   Butternut Squash Tortelleni!

Hey everyone! Tonight I made butternut squash tortlleni! Okay, so I made homemade pasta dough (and I didn’t roll the dough out thin enough, it was a tad bit thick!). Luckily I had wonton wrappers, so those wonton wrappers saved the day! 🙂 The filling was very good, but I had a lot left, which I froze! They still tasted pretty good, so don’t be afraid to try the recipe! And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter! 🙂

First Step: Start off with butternut squash (the one I used was VERY big, make sure it is washed and peeled)

Step 2: Cut the squash in half

Step 3: Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds.

Step 4: Cut into chunks!

Step 5: Bake @ 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Step 6: For filling: Mash butternut squash. Now add in 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp granulated garlic, and 1 tsp red pepper.

Step 6: Fill Wonton wrappers with filling. Using your finger, spread a little bit of water around the borders, and fold over.

Step 7: Brush water all over wonton, and fold each side, you will have a shape that looks like tortelleni! 🙂

Step 8: Boil in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes!

Step 9: Bon appetit! 🙂
