This savory, delicious recipe for Pumpkin Gnocchi with Balsamic Sage + Blue Cheese Sauce is one of my favorites. Clearly a typical fall dinner pick, it's just so good, why limit it to just one season? I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
This recipe is for homemade pumpkin gnocchi is so easy to make and incredibly delicious, you’ll be making this dish for everyone ! And umm, the brown butter, balsamic AND blue cheese sauce?? Yes, that is simply pure perfection. I really can’t think of a more delicious, cozy fall meal.
You can make this gnocchi the super easy way and merely use canned pumpkin or you can roast a pumpkin and use fresh puree. Either option works great. I roasted a pumpkin because I had one on hand (remember, kitchen overflowing). Well, that and I really wanted to take photos of all of my cute mini pie pumpkins. See? True pumpkin obsession going on.
The gnocchi consist of pumpkin, flour, hazelnut flour, an egg, some nutmeg and a little manchego cheese. Just a few ingredients and nothing too fancy! Simply mix everything in a bowl, roll the dough into a long snake-like log and cut into cute little gnocchi pieces.
Then boil the gnocchi, brown some butter, add in sage, balsamic vinegar and blue cheese. Toss it all together and DONE.
See, you can do this!!
I just had to serve this dish in my cute little Staub Pumpkin cocottes. They’re the perfect way to display pumpkin filled gnocchi.
I mean really, it doesn’t get any more fall than this! YUM.
