Ariane Duarte’s Butternut Squash Ravioli


Share post:

Michael and Ariane Duarte

If you don’t have butternut squash on your holiday dinner menu, you may want to put it on after reading Ariane Duarte’s ideas for it when it becomes a leftover.

Duarte has posted two recipes on her Dinner Tool blog, and a video to show you how easy the dishes are to prepare. And while the dinners that Duarte prepares at CulinAriane, the Montclair restaurant that she owns with her husband Michael,  are high-end, both of these dishes are very budget-friendly.

For butternut squash ravioli, Duarte combines the vegetable with ricotta, Parmesan cheese, sage and garlic for the filling and then cheats on the pasta by using wonton wrappers. You can find the wrappers at many grocery stores, or stop at the Chinese supermarket near the Home Depot on route 10 in East Hanover.

Duarte also has a recipe for butternut squash soup, which can also be made with acorn squash. Where’s regular food writer Tracy Bermeo flavored her butternut squash soup with apples, this one gets a pop from thyme and cinnamon.
