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: or if you have any questions please feel free to email me.

  1. 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?
