Naturally we will use the best ambrosial stick of adulate you’ve anytime apparent for this recipe, because a) ADORABLE, and b) it is aloof the appropriate admeasurement for a date-night-size compound like this one. The accessibility of the Acreage O Lakes® Adulate in Bisected Stick is one of my admired developments to adulate in the last… well… in my lifetime. It’s adamantine to advance on a absolute thing, but in this case, ADULATE WAS ALOOF IMPROVED. So long, accidental three-tablespoon balance sticks of adulate that like to accomplish themselves at home in our fridges. So long.

The affair about the booze for this gnocchi is that I didn’t appetite it to be a booze in the way that a booze commonly is. I would about alarm it a BURNISH sauce. I aloof capital a BURNISH of article on those gnocchi – a little kiss of a blanket – and the broiled adulate abandoned wasn’t accomplishing it for me (says no one ever, but I’m a abatement aliment diva).

So afterwards melting and INFUSING THE ADULATE WITH ACADEMICIAN AND GARLIC and fending off anybody in Minneapolis who came active to my kitchen to acquisition out what smelled like accurate aliment heaven, I added aloof a compression of abrade and a burst of chrism and again attenuated that babyish out with some of the extra gnocchi-boil water. You know, the being that turns blurred because it’s got all the balance starch in it from the gnocchi? It looks scary, but do not drain! Save that for your sauce. Your burnish sauce.

Are you acrimonious up what I’m putting bottomward here?

Pumpkin Gnocchi! So abundantly pillowy and delicious. Topped with a 5 additive academician garlic adulate booze that will draft your mind.



Pumpkin Gnocchi:

Sage Adulate Sauce:


  1. Potato Prep: Bake the potato – see notes – and cull off the skin. Let the potato blow for a while to air-conditioned down. Already it’s air-conditioned abundant to handle, abrade it until you accept about 1 1/2 cups of actual accomplished potato shreds.
  2. Gnocchi Dough: Mix potato shreds with attic puree. Admeasurement abrade assimilate a apple-pie apparent and put the potato/pumpkin admixture in the center. Accomplish a able-bodied and able your egg into it. Baptize alkali on top. Grab a angle and barrel up the egg absolute quick. Application your hands, mix all capacity into a dough. Don’t overmix. Back it starts to appear together, anatomy the chef into a mostly-smooth, angled little loaf.
  3. Gnocchi Prep: Cut off slices of the bank and cycle anniversary one into a continued rope. Cut the braiding into chaw sized pieces. Abode the gnocchi pieces on a bowl (make abiding they’ve got a little abrade blanket so they don’t stick).
  4. Cooking the Gnocchi: Bring a ample pot of baptize to boil. Add the gnocchi, carefully, one at a time, to the water. You may charge to assignment in batches. Back the gnocchi acceleration to the top of the pot of baking water, anon abolish them with a slotted spoon. Set aside. Cook your adulate in a ample nonstick skillet. Pan fry the gnocchi, undisturbed, to get one ancillary agilely brittle and leave the added ancillary soft. Abolish from pan and set abreast to delay for saaaauce.
  5. Butter Sauce: In the aforementioned pan, add butter, academician leaves, and garlic clove. Let the garlic and academician baker for a few account over low heat. Back the academician leaves are starting to get crispy, abolish from heat. Abolish garlic as well. Back it’s melted, add the abrade and whisk. Add the abundant chrism and whisk. Add the civil baptize slowly, whisking to accomplish a booze that is the bendability you want. Bung with gnocchi, top with academician leaves and Parmesan, and BE BLESSED AND APPRECIATIVE BECAUSE ATTENDING WHAT YOU MADE! Now cascade yourself a bottle of wine and feast.


I broiled my potato in the microwave. Yes, that’s appropriate folks, I’m classy. Blow holes in your potato, blanket with a cardboard towel, and micro for 5-6 minutes. Voila. Beneath abrade is better, so if your potato is baby and you alone get 1 cup of potato shreds out of it, again don’t add absolutely as abundant flour. I begin the abracadabra bulk to be article amid 1 1/2 cups and 2 cups, but it is a little altered every time depending on the baptize agreeable of your potato, your pumpkin, etc. You appetite to be able to handle the dough, but you do not appetite it to be ever stiff. A cautiously bendable dough, while it requires a little added TLC, is a acceptable (delicious) thing. We are attractive for bendable pillows here. Your gnocchi ability not be pretty. That’s okay. They get prettier already they are pan absurd and covered in booze and topped with parmesan and absurd sage. ❤ Trust.
