Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi with Sage Brown Butter Sauce



Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi Ingredients

Sage Brown Butter Ingredients


  1. First, combine all of the ingredients (except the flour) in a large bowl & mix well.
  2. Then add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough becomes too hard to stir.
  3. Place the pumpkin ricotta gnocchi dough on your counter & continue to add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough is no longer sticky.
  4. Place a pot of salted water on the stove at medium high heat until it begins to boil, then lower the temperature to medium heat.
  5. Then take a small handful of the dough & roll it into the shape of rope until it is about 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Using a knife cut the pumpkin dough roll into gnocchi pieces that are about 1/4-1/2 inch wide.
  7. Continue to roll & cut your gnocchi until you have a batch large enough to cook.
  8. Place the gnocchi pieces in the water, give it a good stir so they don’t stick together.
  9. Once the gnocchi floats to the top continue to let them cook for another 2-3 minutes then remove them with a slotted spoon.
  10. Place your cooked pumpkin ricotta gnocchi in a bowl with a little bit of olive oil to keep them from sticking while you cut & cook the rest of your gnocchi.
  11. Continue this process of rolling, cutting, & cooking until all of your pumpkin ricotta dough is gnocchi.
  12. To make the Sage Brown Butter Sauce place evenly cut thin slabs of butter in a single layer on a saucepan at medium heat.
  13. Once the butter has melted, continually stir the butter with a wooden spoon in a whisking motion until the butter is just one shade below brown butter.
  14. Remove the butter from the heat, add 2 tablespoons of sage, & return the butter to the heat, continually stirring for 15-30 more seconds until brown but not burnt.
  15. Then stir in the Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi & serve warm.
  16. We also added a sprinkle of smoked gouda cheese to the top of our Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi with Sage Brown Butter Sauce to add one more texture & flavor to this delicious meal!
