Crunchy pan seared pumpkin gnocchi with ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese... This homemade gnocchi recipe is a great autumn side dish! And also fun to make...
Add a tablespoon of butter to a large pan and place it over medium heat. Add the diced pumpkin, garlic and shallot.
Pulse into a smooth puree. Then season with pepper and salt. Add the egg and grated parmesan.
Blend the dough one last time. If it's too sticky, add extra flour.
Unwrap the dough and quickly knead it again. Roll it into sausages and cut it into even portions. Press them lightly with a fork to make the classic pattern. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil to a non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Add the gnocchi and thyme.
Bake the gnocchi on all sides until lightly brown. Season with pepper and salt.
Transfer the gnocchi to a serving plate. Sprinkle with extra grated parmesan and fresh thyme. Serve hot.
