Sauce for pumpkin gnocchi?

I've been given some homemade pumpkin gnocchi but I am unsure what type of sauce to serve it with as I've never eaten it before.

Any suggestions?

I would make a browned butter sauce with sage, pancetta, and cinnammon.

The touch of sweetness from pumpkin can be pleasantly contrasted with a piquant flavour of gorgonzola...
You can do a tasty sauce with gorgonzola melted in cream, with a dash of white pepper and nutmeg.

I like the idea of IC, too though!

I suggest you to try with black cabbage (of course we can find it in winter or frozen)
Just boil it and then blend with olive oil and salt.If you like to have like a sauce, add some tablespoons of cream or yoghurt...easy and quick!

Simona, what is black cabbage? Could it be radicchio? Though they are more like purple, that's the only thing I can think of that resembles the description of "black cabbage", and yes, if it IS indeed radicchio, it is a lovely idea!! (though I would sautè the radicchio with shredded onion rather than boiling... )

It's a kind of cabbege, in which we use only the leaves. It grows during winter time! Tha Italian name is 'cavolo nero' and it's typical of my area (Tuscany)
