A Cooking Challenge

My Children decided to challenge me.  They said I could not make a dinner out of these different ingredients: pumpkin, fennel, sage, sausage, gouda, and cream.  They would prefer a pasta of some sort.  To me these ingredients really did not make a lot of sense together, but I was up for the challenge.

So this is what I came up with.  I decided to use the pumpkin to make some fresh pasta.  I put the fennel in the sausage.  I thought the sage and the gouda could be a nice cream sauce.

I came up with a deconstructed pumpkin ravioli with homemade fennel sausage and topped it with the cheesy cream sauce.

They loved it!  And it was fun to come up with something out of these ingredients.

This is what it looked like:

These were the fresh pasta cut into circles to make the “deconstructed” ravioli.
