Reviews for Sage-Pecan Butternut Squash Ravioli
"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!"
