Mash until squash has become more like a puree. Add more milk if needed 1 tablespoon at a time till you reach your desired consistency. Then stir in Parmesan cheese and sage.

Return to you dough and cut tubes into 1 inch pieces. Once the Stockpot has reached a rolling boil add in the Gnocchi and boil for 2 minutes; drain.
