Recipe by BecR
Creamy homemade alfredo sauce, fresh cheese ravioli and a luscious pumpkin-sage sauce combine for this quick and easy meal! Great served with a crisp green salad and a crusty baguette, -or- may be served as a starter. Notes: This dish from the Mantua region of Northern Italy is traditionally eaten on Christmas Eve. You can add a bit of fruit chutney, and sub pistachios for the pine nuts. Enjoy!

For those who don't like sage......I hope it's fair for me to review this with all of my adaptations, BUT the way I made this WE LOVED!!! Omitted sage and replaced with ~1/8 - 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Lessened the butter to 1/4 cup and added some olive oil. Replaced 3/4 cup cream with light sour cream and added ~1/2 cup brown sugar. I LOVE sweet, savory dishes like that. Used pecans instead of pine nuts and toasted them with the onions. We both REALLY liked it "our" way. I hope I can intice others who do not really care for sage to try your recipe : )
