Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Gnocchi

1 1/2 kg pumpkin (queensland blue), deseeded
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
340 g (2.25 cups) plain flour

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Gnocchi

  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Cut pumpkin into 5cm pieces and place in a single layer in a baking dish. Cook, in preheated oven, turning occasionally, for 1 hour or until tender when pierced with a skewer. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.

  2. Carefully peel away the pumpkin skin and any dark crispy pieces. Place in a large bowl and use a potato masher or fork to mash until smooth. Add nutmeg. Taste and season with pepper.

  3. Add the flour and use your hands to mix to a slightly sticky dough that leaves the side of the bowl. Divide the dough into 4 even portions. Roll 1 portion out on a lightly floured surface into a 40cm-long sausage, about 2cm thick. Use a lightly floured knife to cut the dough into 2cm lengths.

  4. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Lightly flour your hands and roll each piece of dough into a ball. Use your thumb to gently roll each ball over the back of a lightly floured fork. Place gnocchi on lined tray. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil over a medium-high heat. Add 1/4 of the gnocchi and cook, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes (they will rise to the surface halfway through cooking). Use a large slotted spoon to drain and transfer the gnocchi to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat, in 3 more batches, with remaining gnocchi.

  6. Bring water back to the boil, add gnocchi and cook for 1 minute or until heated through. Drain well. Divide the gnocchi among serving plates and spoon over your favourite sauce. I use my homemade tomato salsa ... tomatoes, onion, garlic, & ground cumin. Serve immediately topped with shaved parmesan.

  7. You could also make a bolognaise sauce using ground beef, pork, chicken or turkey.
