  • 1 tb Fresh thyme leaves

1. Prepare broth. Heat oven to 450'. To make filling, roast squash, cut
side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet, for 30 minutes. Remove from
oven; when cool enough to handle, scoop out flesh and mash it.

2. In a saute pan over low heat melt butter, add shallots and thyme. Saute
for 2 to 3 minutes, then add mashed squash, syrup, and salt and pepper to
taste; continue cooking for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. To make dough, place flour in a mound on a clean surface. Make a well
and add the whole eggs, 2 yolks, 1 t salt, and 1 T water. Mix egg and water
with a fork until most of the flour is incorporated. Form dough into a ball
and knead until it is firm, smooth, and elastic, about 5 minutes.

4. Divide dough into 4 pieces, shaping each piece into a flat round, and
wrap in plastic to keep from drying.

5. Dust both sides of 1 piece of dough with flour and feed it through a
pasta maker on the widest setting. Fold into thirds; repeat 3 times.
Continue feeding dough through machine without folding, dusting both sides
lightly with flour each time, once on each setting, from widest to

6. Place sheet of pasta on a lightly floured surface and cut into
3-by-3-inch squares with a pasta wheel or sharp knife. Lightly brush each
square with egg wash. Place 1 t of filling in the center of each square;
fold down the top point to form a triangle. Gently press edges to seal.
Brush the point opposite the longest edge with egg wash; fold down the
other points to the center and press together. As you complete each
tortelloni, place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment and dusted with
semolina. (Don't allow tortelloni to touch.)

7. Repeat from step 5 with remaining dough until filling is used up. Dust
tortelloni with semolina, cover with a towel, and refrigerate until ready
to use.

8. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt, and cook tortelloni
until al dente, about 5 minutes.

9. Place 6 tortelloni in each of 6 bowls; pour broth over them, and garnish
with 2 thyme sprigs.
