I had so much fun making chocolate ravioli yesterday, that I wanted to make a main course ravioli! Since I already had leftover gluten-free flours and still wanted to cook for my friend Annina (who has a gluten allergy), I decided to go gluten-free again. 

Although this recipe has a decent number of steps, I promise none of them are very difficult! Also, there are tons of steps along the way that you can vary this recipe to make it exactly what you like: don't have a gluten allergy? You can just use regular flour pasta recipe! Prefer other fillings? No problem! 

I tried to make up the simplest possible gluten free pasta recipe-- the most expensive ingredient was the xanthan gum, but I only needed a little bit so I know it will last me a long time.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
For pasta: 
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 Tbs potato starch
3/4 tsp salt
4 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
3 large eggs
2 Tbs vegetable oil
---for red pasta, also need about 1 Tbs beet powder (I stumbled across this in the bulk section of Whole Foods)
---for green pasta, also need about 2 ounces of spinach

For filling:
about 1 cup of chickpeas, either cooked or from a can (I give instructions for cooking them on the next step in case you want to do that)
butternut squash (about 1 cup roasted)
2/3 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 white onion
olive oil
2 cloves garlic
about 1 tsp chopped sage
juice from 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste

For sage-infused butter sauce:
5 large sage leaves
4 Tbs butter
lemon juice (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

I like the way you show your ingredients. For those of us who are not familiar with gluten free products. It will help to find them in the store.
