Filled won ton wrappers—stuffed with winter squash and topped with a wild mushroom ragu—are easy to love and easy to make. Sold as 3 1/2- to 4-inch squares or rounds, wrappers are made from a flour- or egg-based dough with a dusting of cornstarch to keep them from sticking. (Vegans: Read the label before purchasing.) To make this menu easier, the ravioli can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen. Just place layers of filled ravioli, not touching, on a baking sheet lined with wax paper, and separate the layers with more wax paper to keep them from sticking.
