Notes

You will end with some leftover pumpkin ricotta filling. We made a tart with that.
If you do not have a pasta machine you can use a rolling pin to make the sheets.
If you do not have the ravioli mold you can cut the pasta sheets into 2 inch squares and place a small dollop of filling in the square and place another dough square on top. Then press the edges, finishing by pressing a fork into the edges all round the perimeter.
