Pumpkin Shaped Gnocchi Recipe

Here’s a simple but visually stunning holiday dish that will “wow” your guests with a great taste and stunning presentation. And the best part? You’ll look like a master chef when you bring it to the table!

While I am not generally in the lead role in the kitchen, that’s hubby’s job, he played the part of wine sipper in chief and left me to it.     I had attempted making Gnocchi once before, in Italy, under the close supervision and guidance of chef Gianluca D’Esposito and his wife, Holly Star, at their beautiful Ristorante Michel’angelo in Capri. Seen here and if you are interested in an Italy experience Gianluca and Holly are currently offering cooking classes in the comfort of their picturesque garden villa and most recently collaborating with EATALY holding cooking classes at their USA and Canadian locations in 2020. See http://www.caprimichelangelo.com/cooking.html for more details!

If you would like to make the Pumpkin shaped gnocchi here is the experience.    Once I got started creating the dough, I began to relax and found the essence of cooking a new dish to be less intimidating than I thought and I quite enjoyed the process. The dish turned out delicious while also being visually stimulating. I give credit to FoodWithLiz.com where I found this recipe. It’s a winner for holiday dinner parties and a fun dish to prepare with your partner. 

I may have used regular butter 😀 and found that the 00 napoli antimo caputo flour worked very well. * tip def freeze the dough for 30 minutes.  Try some meatballs on the side and you have a Husband approved party dish ready to serve!
