Gnocchi is one of our favorite pastas to enjoy all year long, especially in the fall when it’s pumpkin season!  This delicious gnocchi with pumpkin sauce is a hearty and filling dinner. It tastes gourmet, but is secretly simple, and uses pantry staple ingredients.
 
A cozy fall pasta that takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. The pumpkin is deliciously savory and pairs so nicely with the soft gnocchi.
 
Gnocchi are one of my favorite pastas, I love every soft bite. The word gnocchi comes from the Italian word for “little knots” which are perfect descriptions of these little dumplings. I used a store-bought potato gnocchi, which you can find in any major grocery store, or you can make them from scratch.

How Do I Make Gnocchi with Pumpkin Sauce?

  1. In another pot, add the olive oil, garlic, onions, and celery. Sauté on low heat for 7 to 8 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften and brown. 
  2. Add the Herbs de Provence, vegetable stock, cover the pot with a lid, and allow vegetables to cook for 10 minutes.
  3. In a separate sauce pan, heat the cream until it is hot but not boiling.
  4. In a high speed blender, add the cooked vegetables, pumpkin puree, heated cream, salt, pepper, and sage.  Blend on high for 1 minute until a thick sauce comes together. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  5. In a large pot, cook gnocchi according to package instructions, drain and set aside in a bowl to cool.
  6. Pour sauce over the gnocchi, and mix.  Top with parmesan cheese (or a plant-based substitute) if desired, a little extra fresh cracked pepper, and enjoy.
