       1 c  Shelled pumpkin seeds
     1/2 c  Onion
            -chopped
       1 ea Slice white bread
            -torn into small pieces

      14 oz Chicken broth
     1/2 c  Whipping cream
            Salt
  
   Mix cheese, pumpkin, 1/2 tsp salt and the nutmeg; reserve.
   
   Mix flour and 1/2 tsp salt in large bowl; make well in centre.  Beat
   tomato paste, oil and eggs until well blended; pour into well.  Stir
   with fork, gradually bringing flour mixture into centre, until dough
   forms a ball. If dough is too dry, mix in up to 2 Tbsp water.  Knead
   on lightly floured cloth-covered surface, adding flour if dough is
   sticky, until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.  Cover, let rest 5
   minutes.
   
   Divide dough into 4 equal parts.  Roll dough, one part at a time, into
   rectangle, about 12 x 10 inches (keep remaining dough covered).  Drop
   pumpkin mixture by 2 level teaspoonfuls onto half of the rectangle
   about 1 1/2 inches apart in 2 rows of 4 mounds each.  Moisten edges
   of dough and dough between rows of pumpkin mixture with water.  Fold
   other half of dough up over pumpkin mixture, pressing dough down and
   around mixture. Trim edges with pastry wheel or knife.  Cut between
   rows of filling to make ravioli; press edges with fork to seal.
   Repeat with remaining dough and pumpkin mixture.  Place ravioli on
   towel; let stand, turning once, until dry, about 30 minutes.
   
   Prepare Pumpkin Seed Sauce.  Heat until hot; keep warm.  Cook ravioli
   in 4 quarts boiling salted water (2 tsp salt) until tender, 10 to 15
   minutes, drain carefully.  Serve ravioli with sauce.
