Kabocha Squash Ravioli Filling

1 lb Kabocha Squash

2 cups ricotta cheese

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 egg yolk

1 whole egg

1/4 tsp grate nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 lemon

Peel and remove the seeds from the Kabocha Squash.  Cut into 2″ pieces.  Drizzle the squash with a little olive oll and season with salt and pepper.  Roast the squash in a 350 f oven until tender.  Next, put the squash through a food mill or puree in a food processor. 

In a stainless steel mixing bowl, combine the squash puree with the remaining ingredients, except the lemon.

Zest the lemon and add to the bowl.

Mix the ingredients well with a rubber spatula.

Refrigerate until ready to use.
