Recipe Ingredients for pumpkin gnocchi with sage butter sauce

1 1/2 cups part skim ricotta
1/5 cups canned pumpkin
3 cups flour
1 1/2 sticks margarine
4 tbsp sage
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 onions
3 eggs
1 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for pumpkin gnocchi with sage butter sauce

  1. Set a large pot of salted water on a stove and turn heat on high boil.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, ricotta, flour, egg, nutmeg (if using) salt and a few grinds of fresh black pepper. Stir gently to form a very soft dough.

  3. Dust a clean plate with flour and set it next to your work area. Turn the dough out on a lightly-floured surface and divide into 6 balls. Roll each ball into a long, cylindrical ?snake,? about 3/4? thick. Using a very sharp knife, cut into 1? ?pillows.? Set aside on a lightly-floured plate.

  4. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sage. Let cook for 6-7 minutes until onions brown and sage becomes somewhat crispy.

  5. While the onions and sage cook, lower the temperature on the boiling water slightly so you have a light boil. Working in batches cook the gnocchi for 2-3 minutes, or until they float to the surface of the pot. Remove with a slotted spoon.

  6. Transfer the boiled, drained gnocchi to the butter-onion-sage mixture and toss well to coat all the gnocchi with butter. Let gnocchi cook for 2-2 1/2 minutes on each side to ensure they brown nicely.

  7. To serve, divide among 2-4 plates and top with more freshly-ground black pepper if desired. Serve hot.
