I made these (for the second time) last night for a party. Everyone, including the people who claim not to like sweet potatoes, loved them. Easier to prepare than I thought they would be, but a bit time consuming for an everyday thing. We cooked the butter for a little less time and used a bit more lemon juice.

Here is a small modification that you may enjoy. Add a little goat cheese (chevres is lovely, but a good feta also works well) to the sweet potato. Also, for those who didn't love the lemon, try making a creamier sauce incorporating lemongrass. Sprinkle with sage and chopped toasted hazelnuts.

this is the best ravioli recipe ever! I used it to introduce a few Europeans to the sweet potato, and they are now avid fans. You can change up the proportions of spices, lemon juice, butter and Parmesan and it is still amazing. Its the classiest comfort food I've ever eaten and my husband and I make it every chance we get! We usually eat it by itself (varying the quantity depending on our hunger) but I would like to try some accompaniments with it in the future. Tossing the ravioli in the sauce works as well as drizzling if you want your pasta coated in butter.

This dish was delicious. My mother loved it and described it as mouthwatering. The raviolis were very easy to make. My only complaint is that the recipe states that the sweet potato must be cooked for 40 minutes, but it actually took an hour. I was also worried that the ravioli's would fall apart after being boiled for two minutes but they stuck together and turned out beautifully. I will definitely make this dish again.

I made these today, i forgot to add the parmesean as i was making them, so i added it in with the lemon butter mix at the end and drizzles it on top, it made a nice "fancier" looking dish! and tasted just as good!

I microwaved the sweet potato and it was perfect. Even the sweet potato haters in your world will love these!

You can also use butternut squash. Chunk up either and boil in chicken broth to speed up the process. Four cheese Alfredo goes well with the butternut squash.

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.
