Pumpkin Gnocchi for Chief :)
Just another tasty way to use up leftover Halloween pumpkins! My version of Gnocchi. TNT

1 and half pounds of pumpkin peeled and diced
1 medium potato
1 large egg beaten
1 cup of AP flour
olive oil for drizzling
salt to taste

Sauce
1/2 cup of butter (not margerine)
A handful of fresh sage leaves
Finely grated pecorino cheese and nutmeg to serve.

Preheat oven to 356F
Place pumpkin cubes on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil. Roast 30-40 mins or till tender.
Boil potato in it's skin till soft. Remove skin when cool enough to handle.
Mash pumpkin and potato together till smooth.
Add flour and egg and a dash of salt to pumpkin mix to form a smooth and soft dough.
Roll teaspoons of mixture on a floured surface to form small balls and flatten gently with a fork.
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add Gnocchi in batches, boil till they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside and keep warm.

Melt butter in a sauce pan on high heat, add sage leaves and cook till crisp and butter is browned but not burnt. Pour over Gnocchi and serve with grated pecorino and a light dusting of nutmeg.

All of the above can be made with butternuts. I also top my cottage pie with butternut and sweet potato (flavoured as you would mash, not sweetened) instead of regular potato mash, serve butternut puree with peppered beef tenderloin (fillet) and make a butternut bake (thin slices of buttenut layered with cream and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar baked till tender and golden on top) etc.
