This was a great success - I only wanted 3 pieces each for an entree for my hubby and I so I laid the remainder on a tray in the freezer along with the excess pumpkin and once they were frozen I packaged them up into 2 other portions (entree sizes again). So now I only have to defrost the ravioli, pop on salted boiling water, melt some butter and we have a delicious (easy) entree.. Yumm..
