Pumpkin Gnocchi

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Smoked Ricotta (also called in Italian, Gnocchi di Zucca con Ricotta Affumicata) are absolutely delicious!

These gnocchi are another way to have fun cooking with pumpkins this fall as well as benefit from their high-nutrient content.


In this recipe, the gnocchi are shaped by using the wooden gnocchi board method, shown in the picture above , or you can use the back of a fork.

What’s really important here is not what method you use to shape the gnocchi, but rather making them all similar in size, so that they cook evenly. 




Smoked Ricotta/Ricotta Affumicata

Cheese tip: Smoked ricotta is a specialty cheese of Southern Italy and more specifically of  the town of Mammola in the province of Reggio Calabria.

The fresh ricotta cheese is smoked for 24 hours (12 hours per side)
