I like to make pumpkin gnocchis. They're like big pasta so everybody eats vegetables without even knowing it! You will need 500 g of pumkin flesh, 1 egg, about 100 g of flour (not self raising one!), salt and spices to your taste. Once the pumpkin is cooked mash the flesh with a fork. Salt the purée, add spices if you like them. If it's too wet dry it for a while in a saucepan.
Add the egg and mix. Then the flour. You could add more than 100 g of flour until you have a smooth paste , compact and soft .
Divide the dough and roll it between your floured hands until 1cm of diameter . Cut into small pieces .
Plunge the gnocchi in plenty of salted boiling water. Let them cook until they rise to the surface (2 to 3 min) .
Drain the gnocchi , place them in a warm serving dish, with butter on them and sprinkle with parmesan. Or put you could put them in the oven with plenty of your favorite cheese on them to make a gratin!
We had ours with some peppers, chorizo sausage and sun-dried tomatoes - Toby declared them super-yummy Thank you!!!
