Recipe Notes for Pumpkin Gnocchi: 

For potato puree; I cut a potato into small chunks and microwave them while dipped in water for 6 mins. Strain and blend the potato into a fine smooth puree

The dough while rolling is very delicate so use more dry flour for dusting and roll with extremely gentle strokes. Once cut into small chunks; carefully place them in boiling water but not rolling boil.

You can rest the dough in the refrigerator for it to firm before working with it. It will make it easier and less delicate than working with the dough directly

I served the gnocchi in rosemary-flavored butter but it tastes amazing, even with creamy white sauce. You can the sauce as a base for gnocchi from this delicious creamy sauce pasta recipe!
