400g pumpkin puree
250g ricotta cheese
200g plain flour
1 egg
3 tbsp. chopped sage leaves
50g grated Parmesan
Salt and pepper


1. Mix the pumpkin puree, ricotta cheese, egg, Parmesan and sage leaves together. Season well.

2. Gradually work the flour into the mixture until you have a smooth dough.

3. Flour your work-surface and your hands. Divide the dough into quarters and then roll into long ropes. Cut the ropes into 2cm lengths and then press a fork into the back of them.

4. Leave the gnocchi to sit out on the surface for a couple of hours to dry out.

5. To cook, heat a pan of salted water until boiling and then drop the gnocchi in the water. Cook for 2 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and then serve.
