    There are recipes using butternut squash as a filling & they are delicious : 9

    I am growing sweet potatoes this year and they are almost ready to harvest.
    This weekend I'll be making pasta with my eggs & wondered if I can devise a filling for ravioli using the sweets.

    Anyone have a recipe or idea?
    I was thinking of using thyme to season the potatoes and probably some carmelized garlic & onions.

    BigMike, where are youuuuuuuuu?????

    I think thyme, carmelized onions and garlic sound great! I think I would add a little cinnamon and clove just to get that sweet potato pie hint. Then I would just toss the cooked ravioli with olive oil and parm.

    I think I would try a chees mixture too . . . maybe stick with the carm onion and garlic, but mix in gorgonzola as well . . .?

    i have eaten them before they are topped with a brown butter sage ... you brown your butter and saute' sage leaves in it then pour over your sweetpotato... squash... kind of ravioli.. delish

    This sounds like a type of Pierogi. I make these, my grandmother made them... my family was from poland.

    I find them in the store boxed in the freezer section too.

    Thanks everybody!

    I was thinking of serving with aioli rather than a marinara-type sauce.

    Katy: the cinnamon sounds like a great addition and maybe a 2nd batch with the gorgonzola (I love blue cheeses!)

    vfem: pierogi sounds like a fun way to use them too

    Hope I dig lots of sweets!!!
