Combine the pumpkin, thyme, garlic and shallot with salt, pepper, nutmeg and oil. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 190°C for about 20 minutes.

Put the flour, eggs, oil, water and salt in the bowl of your food processor and turn 5 minutes at medium speed. Remove the dough and knead by hand for 2 minutes. Cover and set aside.

Place the roasted pumpkin and mash to a puree, add the ricotta and season with salt and pepper.

Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Take one of the pieces and flatten it out, brushing some flour on both sides. Roll out into a thin sheet or feed it through the pasta roller. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Place scoops of pumpkin filling onto a pasta dough sheet. Brush the dough with water around the scoops of filling. Place a second sheet on top, making sure that there is no air in the pockets. Use a round cutter or a glass to cut the ravioli out. Stick the edges together using a fork.
Cook in salted water for about 3-5 minutes.Remove from the water with a slotted spoon.

Place all the ingredients for the pesto in a food processor and blend.
Serve the ravioli with the sage pesto and sprinkle with roasted pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
