  • This was my first experiment with gnocchi! Turned out good! I used canned pumpkin and left out the nutmeg. I added 6 T of 35% cream to the sauce. The sauce was fantastic! Yummy!

    Next time I think I would add a little salt to the dough. Also next time I would make my balls a little smaller. - 11/6/10

  • I'm not a big gnocchi fan usually, but the paprika sage sauce makes this truly delicious. The work involved in making the gnocchi is definitely special-occasion worthy, but it isn't as bad as I'd feared - it's a good way to get the kids involved. I love having another use for pumpkin in the fall! - 3/13/10
