Step 1

For the Ravioli: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a mixing bowl combine the minced roasted vegetables, goat cheese, salt and pepper, and mix well. Lay 1 sheet of fresh pasta on top of a ravioli form, placing half on the form and the other half hanging off onto the work surface. Place 1 tablespoon of vegetable filling in the center of each ravioli hollow.

Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the areas between hollows with some of the beaten egg. Fold the sheet of pasta over so that the ravioli "pockets" are covered. Using a rolling pin, roll over the ravioli form with firm pressure to seal the raviolis and to perforate pasta between each ravioli.

Remove excess pasta from the edges, and check to make sure the raviolis are properly sealed. Repeat the entire procedure with the remaining 2 sheets of pasta.

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add the ravioli in batches and cook until just done, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the ravioli with a slotted spoon, place 3 on each serving plate, and top each serving with 1/2 cup broth and a large dollop of the melted leeks.

For the Roasted Vegetables: Roughly chop the vegetables to an equal size, approximately 2-inch pieces. Place in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, then season lightly with salt and white pepper. Roast the vegetables in a roasting pan until evenly browned, about 1 hour.

Remove the equivalent of 1/2-cup of assorted roasted vegetables from the pan to make the ravioli filling. Finely chop the 1/2-cup vegetables and place, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For the Citrus-Tomato Broth: In a large, heavy stockpot, combine the roasted vegetables with 1 gallon of water, 2 bay leaves, the peppercorns and thyme, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the stock for 3 hours. Strain with a fine mesh strainer into a clean wide-mouth pot, bring to a boil, add the tomato paste, and reduce to 2 cups over medium-low heat. Remove the broth from the heat and stir in the honey, orange juice, lime juice, and lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.

For the Melted Leeks: In a large sauté pan over medium heat lightly sweat leeks with butter until very soft, stirring constantly to avoid coloring, about 5 minutes. Add wine and bring to a simmer and continue to cook at a low boil for about 20 minutes, until leeks are very soft and tender and almost all liquid has evaporated. Season, to taste, with salt and white pepper.
