It’s the season where everything is coming up pumpkin. If you go to Trader Joe’s they sneak pumpkin into just about everything so you end up trying just about everything. So in looking for ravioli the other day I came across this in the refrigerated aisle and figured I’d try it. Trader Joe’s Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli is definitely something worth looking at if you enjoy a good butternut squash ravioli.

Trader Joe’s Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli is a fantastic seasonal offering. It tastes of pumpkin without being overwhelmed by it. It has a good spice blend added to give it a touch of sweetness. Enjoy this with meatballs or with Trader Joe’s Meatless Meatballs.
How do you make this dish better? By washing it down with a pumpkin beer like New Belgium Pumpkick (also found in Trader Joe’s and you can buy single bottles to make sure you actually like it instead of committing to a 6 pack).
Pumpkin beer like this one adds and enhances the flavor without muddling it. As for a sauce, I’d stick with a butter sauce or a light herb sauce. There are a lot of flavors already present and you will run the danger of overwhelming this dish. I enjoyed it with just a little bit of butter.
