      1 pn Cayenne

  PASTA: If you can't find frozen pasta sheets or prefer to make your
  own, here's a recipe that's virtually foolproof. Herbs and spices
  compatible with the dish can be kneaded into the dough toward the end.
  
  Heap the flour and make a well in it.  Break the eggs into the well
  and beat them together with a fork. Stir them into the flour from the
  bottom of the well with the fork until the dough in the center is
  smooth or shiny. With your hands, gradually incorporate the flour
  from the outside of the well toward the center, kneading gently until
  the mass of dough comes together.
  
  Knead the dough until it is smooth and resilient.  You may need to
  add more flour, or you may not be able to incorporate all of the
  flour, depending on the humidity and the size of the eggs. If the
  dough is sticky or extremely pliable, knead more flour into it.
  
  Divide the dough into three portions, cover them with plastic wrap or
  an overturned bowl, and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  
  FILLING: Puree the cooked pumpkin or squash and carrots in a food
  processor until smooth.
  
  Saute the onions, garlic, and spices in butter until the onions are
  soft, then add to the pureed vegetables. Add the cheese, maple syrup,
  egg, salt, and pepper.  Taste the adjust seasoning, then set the
  filling aside.
  
  SAUCE: Preheat oven to 400 F and toast the hazelnuts in a shallow pan
  on the middle rack for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown and fragrant.
  Remove from the oven. When they are cool enough to handle, wrap the
  nuts tightly in a lint-free towel and vigorously rub them against the
  towel. Open the towel carefully and pick out the nuts and continue
  rubbing until the nuts are almost blond.
  
  Cook the cream, garlic, cayenne, and pepper over high heat, stirring
  often and adjusting heat to keep the cream from boiling over. When
  the cream is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, add the salt,
  taste, and adjust seasoning.  Remove sauce from heat until you're
  ready to use it.
  
  ASSEMBLY: If you're making your own pasta, roll the dough out very
  thin on a lightly floured surface, one portion at a time. If you have
  a pasta machine, follow the manufacturer's instructions for rolling
  out the dough into sheets about 1 millimeter thick.
  
  Lay one pasta sheet out on a flat surface and spray it with water to
  prevent drying and to make it more flexible. Place half tablespoons of
  filling along the bottom edge of the pasta about 1/2 inch apart. For
  larger ravioli, use 1 tablespoon of filling and leave 1 inch between
  dollops. Fold the pasta sheet over the filling and cut apart with a
  ravioli cutter. Set the finished ravioli aside and cover with a damp
  cloth.
  
  Cook the ravioli in salted boiling water al dente. Reheat the sauce,
  then drain the ravioli.  Add the shredded sorrel to the sauce and
  cook just until it wilts -- about 30 seconds. Add half the hazelnuts,
  turn the heat off, and add the cooked ravioli.  Stir gently and serve
  immediately. Garnish with the remaining hazelnuts.
