Method

Firstly cut the butternut squash in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds. Put onto a baking sheet and sprinkle over the garlic and rosemary. Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in a preheated oven at 200⁰C for approximately 45 minutes or until the flesh is soft.

In the meantime, make the fresh pasta. Put the flour onto the work surface and make a well in the centre. Whisk the eggs in a bowl, then pour into the well in the flour. Start to mix the flour into the eggs a little at a time using the tips of your fingers. Bring everything together to form a dough and knead for 5 minutes. Cover in cling film and put in the fridge for half an hour.

When the squash is cooked, scoop the flesh out, put into a bowl and mash up using a fork. Add the crushed amaretti biscuits, parmesan and ricotta then season with salt and pepper.

Cut the pasta dough into 4 pieces, flatten each piece with a rolling pin, then roll them out one piece at a time using a pasta machine. Sprinkle the pasta with flour while you are rolling it out to stop it sticking. Place a generous teaspoon of the squash mixture onto the pasta, spacing each one about 5cm apart. Brush around each pile of mixture using the egg wash, then place a second sheet of pasta over the top. Press lightly around each mound, taking care to push out as much air as possible. Cut round each one using a 5cm square or round ravioli cutter and gently press around the edge of each ravioli using a fork. You can roll out the pasta off cuts again to finish all the filling.
