Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Squash Gnocchi

2 1/5 lb butternut squash, halved, skin and seeds removed
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) whole wheat flour
1 egg
3 tbsp (45 ml) Parmesan
1/4 tsp (1 ml) nutmeg

Recipe Directions for Butternut Squash Gnocchi

  1. Heat oven to 400F (200C). Cut the squash into thin slices, place in a baking pan, cover with foil and bake for 1 hour. Transfer to a blender and blend well.

  2. Place in a strainer lined with a cloth and refrigerate for 24 hours.

  3. The next day, place 1 lb (450 g) squash in a bowl and add all the other ingredients.

  4. Mix together to form a dough. If too sticky, add more flour.

  5. Divide the dough into several pieces and roll out each piece to make a rope about 1 inch in diameter.

  6. Cut each rope into 1-inch-long pieces. Place the gnocchi on a cookie sheet and freeze for later use or cook immediately.

  7. To cook, add to a pot of boiling salted water. They are ready when they rise to the top.

  8. Toss with a bit of EVOO or clarified butter and sprinkle with chives and Parmesan shavings.
