Butternut Squash Tortelli
Butternut squash, roasted until tender and golden brown, offers a sweet and earthy balance to the creamy butter sauce draping the pasta. Crushed amaretti cookies add a welcome almond flavor and a lightly crunchy texture to the creamy filling. This generous recipe is easily halved. For a shortcut, substitute wonton wrappers for the fresh pasta and reduce cook time as needed for al dente results.
After resting, dough may be stored in refrigerator up to 1 day. Let come to room temperature before rolling. To freeze shaped, uncooked tortelli, place in an even layer on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Freeze until solid, about 30 minutes. Transfer to ziplock plastic freezer bags, and freeze up to 1 month.
