Authentic Pumpkin gnocchi

Pumpkin Gnocchi are a typical dish from my region in Italy. I grew up making them at home with my grandma and eat them afterward on the Italian Sunday lunch cliché.

Last week I was in Italy and I had the chance to make them with all the proper tools. 

So I baked a pumpkin and I thought why not try to make pumpkin gnocchi.

all the ingredients 


Pumpkin Pure 

Salt to taste 

Pumpkin Gnocchi 

Bake previously a pumpkin and let it cool so you can scoop out the orange pulp into a bowl. 

Then slowly add some flour and start kneading the mixture into a dough by adding flour to it. 

Knead it until it’s a firm dough and let it rest for about 30 minutes in a bowl under a kitchen towel. 

Grab a wooden surface and dust it with flour then divide the dough into egual pieces and start shaping them into a snake and with a knife cut the gnocchi

you can leave them like that or give them a texture with a fork or a “riga gnocchi” 

Get a big pot of water and place it on the fire, when it’s boiling drop some sea salt and the gnocchi one by one. Cook them until they come to the surface and add them to your favorite sauce. 

I prepared a sauce of funghi trifolati with mushrooms and white wine.
