If you don't make your own ravioli dough, you can use won ton skins. A few other topping ideas - for a pasta main dish, top the pumpkin ravioli with heated pesto sauce and a little half n half. For a dessert ravioli, top with chocolate sauce and mint (if you like). If you're using fresh pumpkin, an extra treat is toasting the seeds. If I had an ice-cream maker/machine I would experiment with pumpkin ice cream.

I've made this with canned and fresh. It's better with fresh, but more trouble.
Sounds really good but I'm having trouble thinking what I would serve this with? What do you serve with it?

" Anyone got any sort of recipe for pumpkin bread?" - yes, I posted this somewhere on the forum, but can't find it... this was in the Baltimore Sun paper a year or so ago - it's a (as they say) TNT recipe that has become a family and neighborhood favorite!!

* Exported from MasterCook *
Glazed Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf

3 1/3 cups flour
3 cups granulated sugar
2 tsps. baking soda
1 tsp. each: cinnamon -- nutmeg
4 eggs -- lightly beaten
2 cups canned pure pumpkin
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup chopped nuts
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate -- melted
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar -- sifted
4 Tbsps. cold water -- (4 to 6)
1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate -- melted
2 tsps. hot water -- (2 to 4)

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl; set aside. Whisk together eggs, pumpkin, oil and water in a medium bowl. Stir into the flour mixture; mix just until blended. Fold in the nuts.

2. Transfer 2 cups of the batter to a small bowl, stir in the melted chocolate. Spoon half of the remaining plain batter into the two greased and floured 9-by-5-inch loaf pans; spoon half the chocolate batter over the top of each pan. Spoon remaining plain batter evenly over the chocolate batter in each pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and dry, about 1 hour, 10 minutes. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan to cool completely on wire rack.

3. For glaze, mix confectioners' sugar and cold water in a small bowl until the right drizzling consistency. Transfer half of the mixture to a separate bowl. Stir in chocolate and enough of the hot water to make the right consistency for drizzling. Drizzle white and chocolate glazes in a zigzag pattern on each loaf.
