  • About

Use a small pumpkin or a piece from a medium-size pumpkin for the gnocchi — the very large, Hallowe’en pumpkins can be very fibrous. The gnocchi should be cooked very soon after shaping, or they will fall apart. If more convenient, the sauce can be made first.

Ingredients

For the gnocchi

  • 1 pumpkin (500-750 g), seeds and fibres removed
  • 275 g floury

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.

Cut the pumpkin into large pieces and wrap in foil. Bake until soft and tender, about 1½ hours. U
