I grew up in a household where everything was pretty much made from scratch. My father was a professional baker; so I learned so much from him. My grandmother was another one who taught me a couple of things in the kitchen. One of the things I will never forget is how to make homemade bread or pasta. I remember when I was about 5 years old, she taught me how to make gnocchi. It was so much fun. I wanted to make a homemade gnocchi with butternut squash (instead of traditional potatoes). The dough to gnocchi is super fluffy, like clouds. This is a perfect 1st course starter. I also made a butter and sage sauce to toss the gnocchi. This goes great with my red wine short ribs I’ve also posted on this site. I hope you enjoy!

Omg gorgeous! I can’t get enough of butternut squash and am always looking for new ways to use it!
Amazing! I can’t wait to try!
homemade stuff is always the best, and old ladies seem to add the most love to that kind of stuff 🙂 Looks delicious!
Wow! Great picture and great idea. I love gnocchi if it’s made right, but have never made it. This recipe sounds quite doable. I wonder can you form the gnocchi it advance and keep them overnight or for a day or two?
What a festive dish! Merry Christmas!
Looks great. I haven’t yet tried homemade gnocchi yet. I’d love to try it and this looks simple enough.
