The fall and winter seasons are just perfect for comforting dishes, aren’t they? This butternut squash gnocchi recipe is just that- warm and comforting and absolutely delicious!
I’ve been making homemade butternut squash gnocchi for years. In fact, whenever fall rolls around and butternut squash starts to become available, my husband asks when I’m going to make the gnocchi. If you were to ask my husband on the spot what his favorite recipe of mine is, his answer would be this butternut squash gnocchi, no joke.
Of course I don’t make it nearly enough, but when I do, he always jokes “hello old friend” as he devours a bowlful.
These gnocchi are packed full of flavor, they’re not wimpy little gnocchi, they’re a sturdy delicious gnocchi!
And of course, I love how easy they are to make. All you do is you make a dough using cooked butternut squash (I do this step in the microwave because it saves tooooonnnnns of time) and then you add some flour (I like to use a combination of all-purpose and whole wheat flour) and then you roll/cut/and boil the gnocchi- just like you would a pasta.
The cool thing about gnocchi is that they tell you they’re done cooking when they float to the top of the water.
When the gnocchi are done being cooked, I like to serve them with a little melted butter and parmesan cheese. I’m drooling just thinking about these homemade butternut squash gnocchi. I’d love to know – have you ever tried making homemade gnocchi before?
