Very good...to make this a main course I added oyster and chanterelle mushrooms, sauteed in the drippings of pan-crisped mortadella (only pork I had on hand) which I then crumbled into the dish. Also used homemade pasta. Served with a green salad. I agree that butternut squash or even pumpkin would make good substitutes. I would make this again.

- 24 wonton wrappers
- 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

- Pierce potato several times with a fork; place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until tender. Cool. Peel potato; mash. Combine potato, cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl.
- Working with 1 wonton wrapper at a time (cover remaining wrappers with a damp towel to keep them from drying), spoon 1 tablespoon potato mixture into center of each wrapper. Brush edges of dough with egg white; bring 2 opposite corners to center. Press edges together to seal, forming a triangle. Repeat procedure with remaining wonton wrappers, potato filling, and egg white.
- Bring 6 quarts water to a boil. Add 8 ravioli; cook 2 minutes or until done. Remove ravioli from pan with a slotted spoon. Lightly coat cooked wontons with cooking spray; keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining ravioli.
- Melt butter in a small skillet over high heat. Add chopped sage to pan; cook 1 minute or until butter is lightly browned. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, juice, and pepper. Drizzle butter mixture over ravioli. Garnish with sage sprigs, if desired.
