Potato Leek Soup

Potatoes and leeks have been prepared together for a very long time.   For more flavor, roast the potatoes, peel or scoop the potato out of the jacket and then add it to the broth that is simmering with the leeks and celery.   Simmer together for 15 minutes to blend the flavors and then process.  Cream can be added to taste.   Top with a little crisp bacon and some shredded cheddar cheese and some chopped chives.

6- 8 cups chicken stock
6 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large pieces
4 leeks (whites only), thoroughly washed and sliced
3 stalks celery, roughly chopped
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup heavy cream (or less)

Put the chicken stock, potatoes, leeks, celery, bay leaf and thyme in a large pot and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Boil until the potatoes are soft, 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove the bay leaf. Using an immersion blender (or in batches in a blender or food processor), blend the soup until smooth. Pour the soup into a medium pot; add the cream and simmer until the soup has thickened, about 20 minutes

Winter Squash and Spinach Ravioli

1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and squeezed
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 1/2-inch slices of roasted squash, peeled and mashed
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
8 sage leaves
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
16 wonton wrappers

Heat oven to 400º F.  In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, half the spinach (reserve the rest for another use), salt, and pepper and mix well. In another bowl, stir the squash, sour cream, and nutmeg together. In a skillet, over medium heat, heat the butter. Add the sage and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the broth, simmer 5 minutes, and set aside. Lay out 16 wonton wrappers. Divide the spinach mixture among 8 wrappers, placing a dollop in the center of each. Fold them in half diagonally, pinching one corner to close. Repeat with the squash mixture and the remaining 8 wrappers. Place the 16 packets in a roasting pan and spoon the broth over them. Cover with foil and heat in the oven until warmed through, 10 to 15 minutes.
