Pumpkin Alfredo Gnocchi
Baby, it's cold outside. (I had a Home Alone moment this morning). Now I get why so many people winter in Florida. It’s totally clicking in my head today.
My solution to the cold weather (because I have no plans to move to Florida at the moment)? EAT WARM, HEARTY FOOD. The kind that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
This recipe uses my Hungry Fan Pumpkin Spice Blend. (For the record: pumpkin is great all year round, especially in the fall and winter). Enjoy and stay warm!
Pre-made sweet potato gnocchi (plain is fine too for a milder, less “fall inspired” dish)
1 tablespoon butter
1 shallot, diced
½ cup pumpkin purée
3/4 teaspoon Hungry Fan® Pumpkin
½ cup cream
1 cup whole milk
¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook gnocchi according to package directions and set aside.
Lightly brown the diced shallot with butter over medium heat in a medium sized saucepan.
Add pumpkin puree and spice mix, mix and cook, continuously stirring for about 1 minute.
Add milk and cream and stir until uniform before bringing to a boil.
Reduce heat and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 mins to thicken.
Add the Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper, stir to combine.
Add in the cooked gnocchi and serve.
