For the Pasta Dough:
- 1.1 lb. “00” flour
- 8 oz. egg yolks
- 2 whole eggs
- .5 oz. salt
- .5 oz. extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
For the Butternut Squash Filling:
- 15 lbs. butternut squash, peeled and seeded
- 4 lb. mozzarella cheese
- 1.5 lb. parmesan cheese
- 4 oz. sugar
- 2 oz. minced parsley
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Slice the peeled and seeded butternut squash into 1-inch pieces. Place it on a baking sheet, cover with foil, and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
- While the squash is baking, place all the ingredients for the pasta dough in a mixer. Knead with the hook attachment for 5 minutes until smooth.
- Wrap the dough in plastic and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Once the squash is cooled, place it in a food processor and puree well.
- Pour the squash into a large bowl with the mozzarella, parmesan, parsley, and sugar. Mix well.
- Roll out the pasta dough as thin as possible.
- Using a cookie cutter or upside-down glass, cut circles into the dough.
- Place a half-dollar sized dollop of the butternut squash filling onto the cut pasta circles.
- Fold the dough in half over the filling to form a half moon shape, then use a fork to gently press into the edges around the dough to seal it.
- Gently add the pasta to boiling water and let cook for 3-5 minutes.
- Remove from the water and serve with your favorite sauce.
