Sage-Pecan Butternut Squash Ravioli

I am addicted to this ravioli recipe. The sauce is incredible with any pasta, but ravioli makes it a convenient dinner-in-one. —Barbie Miller, Oakdale, Minnesota

    This recipe is decent. With the sweetness of the pecans, the amount of brown sugar is just too much. Next time I make this, I will be trying ~1/4 Cup Pecans, and just adding brown sugar to taste. Otherwise, a very simple, elegant, easy-to-prepare dinner. Must use fresh sage to get the flavor to come through!
