Stir in 2 ounces cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Working with one wonton wrapper at a time (cover remaining wrappers with a damp towel to keep them from drying), spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons squash mixture into the center of each wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wrapper with beaten egg; bring 2 opposite corners togeher. Pinch edges together to seal, forming a triangle. Repeat the procedure with the remaining wrappers, squash mixture, and egg. Cover the ravioli loosely with a towel to prevent drying.
  4. Place the garlic in a food processor, and pulse until finely chopped. Add the remaining 1/2 ounce (about 2 tablespoons) cheese, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, spinach, basil, and 2 tablespoons pecans. With the processor on, slowly pour oil, broth, and juice through the food chute. Process until well blended. Place the pesto in a large bowl.
