We are going to show you how to shape pumpkin gnocchi using a gnocchi board. How to properly cook gnocchi and finally how to season with a light sauce, not to alter their taste.
Use a sweet pumpkin, such a butternut squash or a kabocha squash. Then, if you want to get delicious, soft but compact homemade pumpkin gnocchi, you have to cook the pumpkin in the oven so as to make the pulp dry out.
Cut the pumpkin into thin slices then place them on a baking sheet.. Cook in a static oven preheated to 200°C (390F) for 15-20 minutes.
Work the dough with your hands as little as possible and quickly. Give it the shape of a loaf. Now cut a piece of pumpkin dough
With your hands make a long roll of dough as thick as a finger. Slice the roll every 1,5/2 cm (about half inch), so as to have small cylinders.
