Homemade Butternut Squash Gnocchi

photo 4

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!

This recipe can be found in my new cookbook.  Purchase your copy here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=Homemade+Delish&categoryId=107107 or if you have any questions please feel free to email me.

    homemade stuff is always the best, and old ladies seem to add the most love to that kind of stuff 🙂 Looks delicious!

  6. 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?
