Recipe: Randy’s Famous Ravioli

Summary: For Thanksgiving last year, we had some special guests over, so I wanted to try something new and risky. I am still in love with butternut squash and settled on that as the base. I went to Whole Foods and walked the aisles for inspiration. I remembered that I had some leftover smoked honey ham at home and then the nice lady at the cheese counter suggested a goat gouda cheese. Here’s the one I called “Randy’s Famous Ravioli”


  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1/4 lb finely chopped smoked honey ham (or Honeybaked Ham)
  • 1 small block of goat gouda cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 5 saltine crackers
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt, pepper


  1. Peel butternut squash and chop into one-inch cubes. Place in large skillet with olive oil. Toss to coat. Add 1/2 cup water and over medium heat, let squash soften (about 20 minutes). Let cool.
  2. Add squash to food processor with saltine crackers, honey and nutmeg. Blend until it looks like baby food. Add a little more water if too thick.
  3. Roll out rectangles of crescent rolls onto non-stick surface. Use a rolling pin to thin out and connect the perforation. Cut into 3 smaller rectangles (i used a plastic spatula for all the crescent roll cutting). On one-half of the rectangle, add a small drop of the squash. Then, some of the ham. Then, a small square of the cheese. Then, 2 carefully placed rosemary leaves. Fold the other half on top and press the sides. Then, take a fork and go all around the sides sealing the ravioli and making it look nice. Repeat for all sections of crescent roll (should make 24 raviolis).
  4. Pre-heat oven to 350 and cook until golden brown. This took 8 minutes for a few in a toaster oven and took 15 minutes in a large oven with other items in the oven. Be careful not to slap your momma.
