Preparation of the pumpkin and potato gnocchi recipe

  1. Start by boiling the potatoes for about 20-30 minutes, until they are quite soft, but without falling apart .
  2. In the meantime, take the pumpkin, cut it into slices and remove the internal seeds and the peel. Cut it into thin slices and bake in the oven at 200 ° C for about 15 minutes .
  3. Once your vegetables are ready, peel the potatoes and remove the pulp, finally mash them with a fork or, if you have it at home, with a potato masher . Do the same with the pumpkin and add it to the potatoes.
  4. Put the two purees on a floured cutting board and add the egg to one hundred and begin to knead, being careful not to cook it with the heat of the vegetables.
  5. Gradually add the flour, a pinch of salt and pepper.
